Our local governing body, Jackson County, has issued a "shelter in place" order from March 24 - April 24.  During this time, St. Matthew will not hold regular worship or communion services and the church office will be closed.  We will continue to record our services and post them online for you.  Those who wish to receive spiritual care and the sacraments may call either of the pastors.

Our staff will primarily work from home these 30 days.  The pastors are accessible by phone, text, and email.  Contact Pastor Otto at 816-916-4935, email otto@gracefaithlove.org;  Contact Pastor Andrews at 816-678-9152, email andrews@gracefaithlove.org. 

Worship with Us Online

Participate in the March 21-22 worship service using this order of worship.

Your Contact Information

Please update your preferred contact information by sending it to secretary@gracefaithlove.org.  Indicate what is to remain listed (okay for the public Church Directory) and what should be unlisted (for church office and pastors only).  We will respect your privacy.

Email: If you have not received emails from the Board of Elders, that means we do not have an email for you.  You may submit emails for any member of your family, since one household email may not be sufficient communication for everyone in the family.

Phone for regular church office contact:  It would be helpful for the secretary and pastors to have cell phone contacts for each member of your family.  Often texting is the quickest way to reach each other.  We will respect your indications for which numbers should be confidential, and which may be published for ordinary contact with St. Matthew members.  

Phone for robocall news:  Any member may receive occasional all-church phone calls.  They are used to ensure members know about funerals, special voter's meetings, or sudden changes in activities.  Please let us know which household numbers should receive these important announcements.
