 St. Matthew Children, Youth, College-age and Family Ministry

Our ministry to children, youth and families is very important to us! At St. Matthew Christian Education begins at baptism, and continues all throughout life. As our young people experience all kinds of new things and changes in life, we want them to know that God loves them and is always with them. We offer a variety of ways for our children and youth to be growing in their Christian faith and life:

Sunday School
Sunday School is held on Sundays throughout the school year at 9:30 a.m. for ages 3 through 5th grade. Our Sunday School is growing, and several new families are coming regularly! If you would like to volunteer as a teacher, substitute teacher, class aide or chaperone with our Sunday School, please call 715-834-4028.

Children's Church
Children's Church for ages 10 and younger is held after the Children's message during both the Sunday services on the 1st and and 3rd Sundays of the month in the lower level of the church. This special time of teaching and activity geared specifically for the younger age group is led by our Children's & Youth Ministries Leader, Jill Wendtland.

Confirmation/Engage

Confirmation classes for those in 6th-8th grade are held on Wednesday evenings during the school year. Class goes from 5:00pm-7:00pm with class, supper and then ENGAGE where we play a crazy game and afterward talk about how we live out our faith at school and in our everyday lives with friends and the world we live in.

If you're a parent or a grandparent and would like to get your middle schooler plugged in or have questions click here to email our Leader, Jill with questions. ALSO, for parents of confirmation students: A church policy has been put in place that if the Eau Claire schools are closed on a confirmation Wednesday because of bad weather, confirmation  will also be cancelled for that evening.

High School

ENGAGE youth group begins at 5:50 with dinner first and then we will either head outside and play our crazy game and have our talk time or down in the youth room depending on the weather! 

Middle School & High School Bible Study: every Sunday starting mid-September through the spring from 9:30-10:20 am. Refreshments provided to go along with our time together!
