Who are we?

St. James’-St. Matthew’s Evangelical Lutheran Church, organized in 1927, is a diverse congregation located in the urban area of South Ozone Park, Queens, in the City of New York. We gather together to celebrate in Word and Sacrament the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to deepen our hope in the power of God’s word. Worshippers from about a dozen nations of origin comprise this growing family of God who have been touched by God’s love and respond by giving their lives in friendship and service.

We welcome the opportunity to walk with you or members of your family through important passages of life: baptism, first communion, weddings, funerals, as well as services in your home and various blessings. Please speak to our pastor for more information; until then, may God bless and keep you!

Vision: Guided by the Holy Spirit; we are a community of believers growing in faith, hope and love in response to Jesus’ Great Commission.

Mission: In response to Jesus’ Great Commission, we welcome all to faith in Christ, while being nourished to fulfill the mandate of serving others and making a difference in the world.
