Welcome to St. Matthew’s!
We are a mid-size, family-oriented group of disciples who believe in opening our hearts to the community to be the restoring and caring hands of hope and healing. We do this through our worship of God, educating ourselves and our children, caring for each other and all of our resources, and by reaching out beyond our walls to serve others and our local community.
Come and be a part of this branch of the Jesus movement on the east side of Indianapolis!

Pilgrim is a course for the Christian journey. The aim of the course is to help people become disciples of Jesus.
A pilgrim is a person on a journey. The Bible is a book full of journeys. God's people are always traveling. God's call to Abraham was to leave his own land for a great journey of faith. God's call to Moses was to lead God's people on a journey from slavery in Egypt to freedom in the promised land. Jesus took his first disciples on a journey from Galilee to Jerusalem. One of the earliest names for people called Christians was followers of the Way.
Pilgrim is designed to help us invite others to join the people of God on our great journey of faith. Its purpose is to help us to draw together a small group of people who desire a deeper relationship with God and with one another, whether you are new to faith or have been a life long follower of Jesus.

The Rev. Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows was elected 11th bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Indianapolis on the second ballot Oct. 28 at Christ Church Cathedral Indianapolis.
Jennifer is 50 years old and is the first African-American woman elected to be a diocesan bishop in the Episcopal Church. She was elected with 67 votes in the clergy order and 82 in the lay order. Her election culminated a nearly two-year discernment and search process by the diocese at the 179th diocesan convention. The Rt. Rev. Catherine M. Waynick plans to retire in the spring of 2017.
