ST. MATTHEW HISTORY

In the year 1869, a group of 10 believers began worship in the home of Peter Kelly on Chelsea Street (now Summer Street). Feeling the need for a place for communal worship, they organized; and in the fall of 1870 they built a chapel on Race Street just east of 58th Street, naming this mission Kelly’s Chapel. In 1877, this independent mission joined the A.U.M.P. Annual Conference. Ten years later, they built a church at 58th and Vine Streets and named it St. Matthew A.U.M.P. Church where they worshiped for twenty six years. As the congregation increased they needed a larger edifice which was erected at 57th and Summer Streets, and was dedicated on November 16, 1913. In the spring of 1916, the congregation became a part of the African Methodist Episcopal Church.

ST. MATTHEW A.M.E
FAITH IS OUR PASSION

No More Fear

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” 2Timothy 1:7

 

Rev. Byrd recognized that fear tends to be at the forefront of what can hinder us from being what God has called us to be. The bracelets we wear are a daily reminder to live fearlessly and to remind others that we must not fear anything.

Need a bracelet? Ask a member!

Everything you’ve ever wanted is on the other side of fear.
