St. Matthews is a home away from home for students at College of Charleston, MUSC, the Citadel and other colleges and universities in Charleston. Each Wednesday evening during the fall and spring semesters we provide home-cooked meals for the students as they gather for fellowship in the LCM lounge in the Education Building. Volunteers are still needed to provide meals for the students; contact Laura Altman or the church office to schedule a meal.
You can now watch as well as listen to last Sunday's sermon! The link is provided here.
Welcome to our newly reformatted website! We hope that this new format will make it easier for you to find current information about our congregation, as well as details on how you can join us in serving Christ in Charleston.
Many of our new pages are still being developed - check back often for updated information.

The children who attended VBS helped kick-off the Buy-A-Brick: Build with God project. The bricks will be installed as a walkway between the sancutary and Community Center buildings. Bricks are now available for purchase: For $50 donation, you can have 3 lines, 18 characters per line, carved into the brick The order forms include options to give the brick in honor or memory of loved ones, and are available at the Welcome Center near the Fellowship Room. All proceeds after expenses for the bricks will go to the Capital Campaign for the repair and restoration of our sanctuary.
There are many accounts of living through Hurricane Hugo, but none quite like this. " A Church, a Dog, and a Monster Storm" is essentially Doug Ludlum's diary of how he (the organist) and Dwight Dubois (one of the church's pastors) prepared for the storm's impact and how they and a Basset hound hunkered down in St. Matthew's during the storm. Copies of this book are still available for only $15 and will be sold in the hallway in the Education Building on most Sundays; all proceeds are earmarked for the current renovation of the sanctuary. For more information, contact Joan Seithel.
