Welcome to St. Matthew’s

Welcome to St. Matthew’s United Methodist Church–in the heart of Gault Village (Ypsilanti)–a place of hope, healing, and belonging, for ALL our neighbors!

All are welcome and accepted for who they are at St. Matthew’s. 

When you come to St. Matthew’s you will discover family you never knew you had. Because we are loved…we love. We see loving God, loving one another, and loving ALL our neighbors as the most essential point of being a church. Love is what fuels our mission and love is the goal of all we do. Come experience and grow in God’s love and find hope, healing, and belonging with us!

What makes St. Matthew’s unique is our location in the community. Whether it’s our neighborhood connection events, our little free pantry, our community partnerships, or our church gatherings, we are here to shine the heart of God’s love across Gault Village and the greater Ypsilanti region. We would love to meet you!

Community Events

Crafting Day

Who’s tired of staying home? Are you a crafter? Do you like to craft with other people?
Join us on February 18, 2023 and bring your current project: we have knitters, scrapbookers, quilters, and painters here at St. Matt’s that are getting back together “post-pandemic” – we’d enjoy meeting our neighbors & making new friends. Stop in and visit, stay for a few hours, or for the day! All donations go to local area missions projects. RSVP here.

Mardi Gras Community Dinner

We are inviting all of our Gault Village neighbors out to celebrate with us as we prepare as a church to enter the Lenten season. We will have a free dinner (walking tacos!), pączki for dessert, live music, plus games and prizes. You must RSVP via Facebook in order to attend. Join us at 6pm 2/21!

Ash Wednesday Service

For our brief Ash Wednesday gathering, we’ll read prayers and Scriptures, receive ashes, and begin to contemplate how Christ was rejected as we enter the Lenten season.

Lenten Sermon Series

While we are convinced that the Church is the hope of the world, the Church has also done much to wound the world. We’ll discuss the ways that we have hurt others and how we can be agents of love and healing going forward. We’ll also see how Jesus was hurt by the “organized religion” of his day.
