St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church
Job Location

Job Description
St. Matthew’s is evangelical in all senses of the word. Its services begin with praise music; its theology is generally conservative; its welcome is warm; and its people care deeply for one another. The congregation is small and dedicated, and full of capable, can-do people, a number of whom have served in the military. Bible Study is an important part of life at St. Matthew’s, as is stewardship: the congregation has one of the highest levels of pledging in the diocese.  The congregation is a leader in local ecumenical ministry, especially the clothing and food banks. St. Matthew’s is committed to the Episcopal Church even though it sometimes experiences tension with the larger church over social and political issues. The Diocese of Maine similarly treasures St. Matthew’s as a faithful expression of a way of following Jesus that is different from many other congregations in the diocese, and will warmly embrace the priest called to serve St. Matthew’s.
