CHOIR

        

St Matthew Women's Choir

Rehearsals are held the *first Sunday morning of the month at 8:30am in the Fellowship Hall.

Women of all ages are invited to attend, as well as any instrumentalists.
 
For more information, contact Mary Jo Hill at (608) 374-7355 or (608) 343-5656.
 
Something new: We are tweaking our church choir a bit.

What's changing:

We will meet one Sunday of the month (usually the first) at 8:30am, practice that morning and sing in that service.
Hopefully this changed schedule will allow more people to commit to singing.

For more information or if you have any questions, contact Pastor Enderle or Mary Jo Hill.


Special Christmas Music Service

In this season of expectation, we prepare to welcome Christ Jesus, the Messiah
into the bustle of our lives and the hard to find moments of solitude.
We prepare to welcome Christ Jesus, the Messiah
into our homes and situations along with friends and families.
We prepare to welcome Christ Jesus, Messiah
into our hearts, and those often hidden parts of our lives.
We prepare to welcome Christ Jesus, Messiah,
for beneath the surface of your story is an inescapable fact.
You entered this world as vulnerable as any one of us
in order to nail that vulnerability to the cross.
Our fears, our insecurities and our sins all that can
separate us from God exchanged by your Grace for Love.
We cannot comprehend the reasoning, only marvel that Salvation comes to us
through a baby born in a stable, and reaches out to a world in need.

In this season of anticipation
We prepare to welcome Christ Jesus, Messiah.

It came upon the midnight clear, that glorious song of old,
From angels bending near the earth, to touch their harps of gold:
"Peace on the earth, goodwill to men from heavens all gracious King!"
The world in solemn stillness lay to hear the angels sing.

 
For lo! the days are hastening on, by prophets seen of old,
When with the ever-circling years shall come the time foretold,
When the new heaven and earth shall own the Prince of Peace, their King,
And the whole world send back the song which now the angels sing.

Special Lenten Song Service

Sunday, March 8, 2015

St. Matthew MGS
(Multi-Generational Singers)

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.

This is my story, this is my song.
Praising my Savior all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song.
Praising my Savior all the day long.

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.

What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written:

“For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.      -Romans 8:28-39


On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross
The emblem of suff'ring and shame;
And I love that old cross where the dearest and best
For a world of lost sinners was slain.

So I'll cherish the old rugged cross
Till my trophies at last I lay down
I will cling to the old rugged cross
And exchange it someday for a crown.

Special Advent Service

Sunday, December 14, 2014

         
 

"The days are coming," declares the Lord, "when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, a King who will reign wisely and do what is just and right in the land. In his days Judah will be saved and Israel will live in safety. This is the name by which he will be called: The Lord Our Righteousness."
Jeremiah 23:5,6

 

Come, your hearts and voices raising,
Christ the Lord with gladness praising;
Loudly sing His love amazing,
Worthy folk of Christendom.

 

   

 
See how God, for us providing,
Gave His Son and life abiding;
He our weary steps is guiding
From earth's woe to heavenly joy.

 

     

 
Christ, from heaven to us descending
And in love our race befriending,
In our need His help extending,
Saved us from the wily foe.

  

 
 
 
Jacob's Star in all its splendor
Beams with comfort sweet and tender,
Forcing Satan to surrender,
Breaking all the powers of hell.

 

Gracious Child, we pray Thee, hear us,
From Thy lowly manger cheer us,
Gently lead us and be near us
Till we join the angelic choir.

Hymnfest: Songs of the Heart
 
Sunday, March 30, 2014
St. Matthew’s powerful Hymnfest raised the church rafters and touched the hearts of participating musicians and congregation members on Sunday, March 30, 2014.
 
The St. Matthew Multi-Generational 20-piece Orchestra accompanied the 25 member festival choir and congregation. The rousing “Holy, Holy, Holy” began the service, followed by a contemporary Amazing Grace and 10,000 Reasons. Pastor Phillip Enderle’s hymn reflections centered on “Now Thank we All our God” and “It is Well with my Soul”. “The Power of the Cross” lead into Pastor Enderle’s sermon message of healing and salvation. Words of God’s amazing love and perfect grace filled the church.
 
“We are a church of great music. God has blessed so many people with musical gifts,” stated Mary Jo Hill, Music Director for St. Matthew Church.
 
More Hymnfests are in the organizational plan. All are welcome! Sunday services 9:15am
 

 

For long ago, in the days of David and Asaph, there had been directors
for the musicians and for the songs of praise and thanksgiving to God.

Nehemiah 12:46

 
 

The trumpeters and musicians joined in unison to give praise and thanks to the Lord. Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals and other instruments,
the singers raised their voices in praise to the Lord and sang:
“He is good; his love endures forever.”
2 Chronicles 5:13
