St. Matthew Gulfport Celebrates 100 Years

100 Years of Reaching Out with God’s Friendship is the theme of the 100th anniversary of St. Matthew Lutheran Church in Gulfport, MS. While there are (have been) several events planned throughout the year, the main celebration will be November 3, 2019. Southern District President, Rev. Eric C. Johnson, has agreed to be our guest speaker on that day. We are also fortunate to have three retired ministers in our congregation who are participating in our planned events.

A very special event will be held on September 15th. St. Matthew’s quilters make lap quilts for cancer patients at Memorial Hospital in Gulfport. On that date, there will be a special blessing of quilts in which the total number of quilts made will reach 1,000 (100 times 10).

Former members and friends are welcome to join us at any time, but especially on November 3rd.
