We are still in a Coronavirus pandemic. Though vaccinations have begun, they are off to a slow start so much as we deeply desire to worship in-person, it is not socially responsible to do so. For the foreseeable future, we are having online-only worship. Our Sunday worship service premiers each Sunday at 10 AM. Use the button link below to see our livestream and archived services. Please check back here for the latest information. See above for information on the Easter Service this year, which will be outside.
The video begins before the beginning of the quarantine early in 2020. It is interspersed with the taping of online services with our priest, Rev. Kay Ashby, Rev. Joe Ashby from Grace Church in Mansfield, OH, and Rev. Daniel Orr of St. Mark's in Shelby, OH. It also includes painting and cleanup around the church grounds and buildings, along with retrospective images from last Christmas and other pre-COVID events. The soundtrack, except the last song is from St. Matthew's pianist, David Crane.
During the spring and summer of COVID, St. Matthews held online services in conjunction with Grace Episcopal in Mansfield and St. Mark's Episcopal in Shelby. You can access and view these services by going to the Grace Episcopal YouTube Channel.
...is a small church in a small Ohio city, and our congregation looks a lot like our surroundings. Look more closely, though, and you will see diversity:
We drive pick-ups as well as luxury cars. We vote for Republicans and we vote for Democrats. We live in Ashland, Mansfield, Butler and "out in the woods". We are university faculty members and we never attended college. Some of us are gay, some are teachers, nurses, small business owners, retirees -- we have a fire-fighter and a couple of Sisters, and occasionally some of us are a little grumpy.
Chances are, you will fit in here..
