Welcome to St. Matthew Lutheran Church partnering with Gordon Grace Methodist in Ithaca, OH! We are a friendly, rural church who welcomes you just as you are, just as God does!


The decision was made after much prayer, discussion and research by the members of the task force to restart in-person church activities on the dates listed above. Please know that effort has been made and will continue to be made to ensure the safety, comfort and physical well-being of everyone. It is very important to note that until further notice all activities will take place at the Gordon campus because the building has central air which allows needed airflow from outside the building and full handicap accessibility for entering and using the three restrooms.

July 1 & July 8th Bible Studies are cancelled
We will resume on July 15th beginning at 6:30 PM
July 5, 2020 at 8:45 am and 10:30 am –
Gordon Campus, 311 East Street, Gordon

Services are lead by Pastor Marla Brown.
