Who We Are

St. Matthew is a member congregation of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod and of the Kanasas District.  We are part of the Aitchison circuit of LCMS congregations. Those connected to St. Matthew's ministries not only reside in Nortonville, but also come from Winchester, Valley Falls, Aitchison, Effingham, and Oskaloosa.



Our mission is to shine the light of Jesus everywhere we go.


St. Matthew aspires to move into the future as a united and joyful community in Christ, strengthened and inspired by God to have an increasing impact upon the Nortonville community and beyond with the love of Jesus Christ.
