We’re excited to have you join us at St. Matthew Church for a Walking with Purpose WINTER SESSION!

Reclaiming Friendship: God’s Plan for Deep Connection was written for any woman who wants a true and deep connection that lasts. Explore what it takes to stay close for the long haul, what to look for in a friend, and how to navigate toxic relationships. There is a way to protect your heart without closing yourself off from future intimacy. The key is found in discovering God’s plan for friendship, which was meant to be a foretaste of Heaven.

In a world plagued by loneliness, you are invited to encounter God personally through Scripture. Let God reshape how you see and experience intentional relationships, deal with your past friendship wounds, and become a woman who is capable of the lifelong bond of true friendship.

Registration fee $20

Living in the Father’s Love

In a world where women  are measured by their beauty, achievements and possessions,  wouldn’t it be nice to find a place where you could just be valued for who you are?

Living in the Father’s Love will lead you to that safe place where you are unconditionally loved, baggage and all. This 6-week Bible study is the ideal way to revive and refresh yourself. Discover just how much God loves us and how the gospels are deeply relevant to our relationship with God and with those we love.

Walking with Purpose (WWP) is a weekly reflection that aims to bring women to a deeper personal relationship with Christ. Through personal study and small group discussions, the experience helps to link our everyday challenges and struggles to the solutions given to us through the teachings of Christ and the Church.

WWP Fall Study: Ordering Your Priorities: Building a Life Well-Lived
Begins Tuesday, Sept. 15, 2022
9:30am – 11am*  ~ 8-Session study
Registration Fee: $15


Another glass of wine, just one more episode on Netflix, a little more scrolling on Instagram…Women are numbing out at ever-increasing rates. Why? What is it about our lives that makes us feel so overwhelmed? What might change if we figured out how to build lives that we like?

Ordering Your Priorities: Building a Life Well Lived is an immensely practical Bible study that will help you put the most important things first. We’ll begin by paying attention to the One who made us, because He can best tell us what we need for our lives to run well.

Ordering Your Priorities, an eight-lesson Bible study, is ideal if you…

  • Are ready to discover not only what matters most in life but also how to prioritize those things
  • Long to feel satisfied at the end of the day, knowing that you’ve loved your family not just in your heart but also in your schedule
  • Want to create a life that you don’t need to escape

A series of talks accompanies this Bible study.

“Strong Yet Tender: Building Resilience in an age of Trauma”

We’re so excited to welcome Lisa Brenninkmeyer, Founder of Walking with Purpose to St. Matthew Church!
Are you tired of feeling untethered and overwhelmed? Most of our families are experiencing anxiety, woundedness, and stress. Rates of depression, anxiety, loneliness, and alcohol consumption are mounting among women. It appears that our ability to cope, to rise above, is lessening.But that does not need to be your story, or the story of your daughters. This is God’s promise to you and yours in Isaiah 43:2, “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.”Come and see how, through God’s help, you can build resilience in an age of trauma.
$25 per person. Tickets non-refundable.



For those of you who are new to Walking With Purpose, it is a Women’s Bible Study that will take you on a Spiritual walk with our Lord.  Walking With Purpose would like to help you enjoy a deeper personal relationship with Jesus Christ, nurtured through personal Bible study and small group discussions created just for women. It is parish-based, approved by parish leadership, and supported by the Walking With Purpose national staff, and welcomes everyone irrespective of faith background, age, or marital status. The program incorporates at-home Scripture study, weekly small group discussion, and monthly talks on relevant study material. Our small group leaders are volunteers who have received training to help facilitate discussions among the women in the group.
