Welcome to St. Matthew Lutheran Church ELCA partnering with Gordon Grace Methodist in Ithaca, OH! (During COVID-19 times, we are worshipping at Gordon Grace UMC Church Building – 311 East St. Gordon, OH)  We are a friendly, rural church who welcomes you just as you are, just as God does!  All Services are lead by Pastor Marla Brown.


(New Time!) 9:15 am and 10:30 am
Gordon Campus, 311 East Street, Gordon

The decision was made after much prayer, discussion and research by the members of the task force to restart in-person church activities. 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.
