The choir is having a fundraiser for new choir robes.  We need $225 to outfit each of our 18 choir members. If the money is raised by the end of September, we can order them in time for Christmas!  Please take an envelope from the display in the narthex, and fill it with your appreciation for our St. Martin’s Choir!  Note on the check that it’s for the Choir Robe fund and place it in the offering or in the mail. Thank you for your generosity.

episcopaliansvoteSundays starting September 11th, 4:00-6:00 pm

Episcopalians can live out our call to care for our neighbors as ourselves by engaging in the public square. This November 8, our nation will head to the polls to decide a number of important elections, and there are many opportunities for Episcopalians to engage in this electoral process.

Father Jon and Father Jay are bringing this national conversation local with weekly discussions right here at St. Martin’s on Sunday evenings from 4-6 pm, starting September 11th.

“If we who are Christians participate in the political process and in the public discourse as we are called to do — the New Testament tells us that we are to participate in the life of the polis, in the life of our society — the principle on which Christians must vote is the principle, Does this look like love of neighbor?”         – Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, March 2016

Story Time will resume at St. Martin’s on September 12. We meet in the nursery from 10:00-11:00am. This special ministry is for children 12 months and up and their caregivers. We have moms that bring their little ones but we also have nannies, Dads, and grandparents.

Each week we have a special theme and stories, music, drama and an art activity are coordinated around it. We also allow little ones time to play in our beautiful new nursery. It is a fun time for all!

In the past two years we have had a wonderful core group of 12 children and their caregivers but this year, most of them will be in either preschool or kindergarten. WE NEED SOME NEW MEMBERS! If you know of a neighbor or relative who is available on Monday mornings we would love to have them. Interested folks are welcome to call me at 636.394.7085 for more information.
