Looking ahead to 2017
Remember that 2017 marks the 75th Anniversary of St. Matthew’s. As part of our celebration we will be bringing back some familiar faces to preach throughout the year. Our first guest speaker was the last vicar who served St. Matthew’s, Daniel Babinec, who now serves as pastor of Zum Kripplein Christi Lutheran Church, in Iron Ridge, Wisconsin, and St. John’s Lutheran Church in Woodlawn, Wisconsin.
Our second celebration Sunday was February 19, 2017, when the Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary Choir lead our services in song and word. What a glorious celebration that was!
Our celebration continued on Sunday, March 19, when Pastor Jordan Ertl lead us in worship. Our guest organist was Faith Gnewuch. It was so special to see these workers again!
Our celebration continues with a very special service, April 23, when Pastor Phillip Sievert (son of former Pastor Sievert, now retired) will lead us in worship, and Matt Proeber, son of Kevin and Jill Proeber, student at the Seminary, will lead us in our liturgy. Our own head organist, Meredith Moeller, will grace us with her talent on the organ. There will be a special musical presentation with instruments and song performed by our own members, and a special hymn written by choir director Jack Schroeder's grandson Alex, son of John and Carrie Schroeder. This piece is entitled
Here I Stand.
Please plan on attending one of the services, 8:00 a.m. or 10:30 a.m. There will be fellowship between the services with beverages and snacks.
There is a special luncheon that will be served AFTER the 10:30 service for which you MUST be signed up for.
Please note that we will not have Thursday evening services during the months of January and February.
