Stony Plain, AB
Our congregation was founded in 1894 by a group of families from who came to settle the area. St. Matthew Lutheran Church is known as a mother church for Lutheranism in Western Canada. From the work of the first pastors at St. Matthew in Stony Plain, at least 90 congregations were founded in Alberta and BC. The congregation grew with the community and now has 1100 baptized and 800 communicant members from various backgrounds and hometowns.

To pursue this, we seek to grow our faith in God, build Christ-centred community with each other and serve the mission of Jesus in the world, as empowered by the Holy Spirit.
Grow our Faith in God (UP)
We aspire to constantly grow in faith by pressing on toward an ever-depending relationship with God and knowledge of His will based on the authority of the Bible.
Build Christ-Centered Community (IN)
We aspire to build a healthy community that reflects the character and priorities of Christ.
Serve the Mission of Jesus (OUT)
