HistorySt. Matthew's Lutheran Church, founded in 1840 by a group of Germans who wished to worship in their native language, quickly outgrew its original building at Hasell and Anson Streets in Charleston.
The congregation moved into its current building in 1872. The small congregation could never have envisioned its growth to become South Carolina's largest Lutheran church at the beginning of the 21st century.
From the beginning until today, St. Matthew's has reached out to meet and serve the needs of others in our local community and throughout the world, as ordained by God.
