St. Martin's Welcomes YOU!
St. Martin’s joyfully affirms that every person is a child of God, made in God’s image. We recognize that we are called to be one body with many members; all are necessary for the health and well-being of the church body. We welcome you because you are you. We embrace your race, ethnicity, heritage, and are committed to the work of racial equity. We embrace your relationship status: married, divorced, widowed, or single; your gender identity and expression, sexual orientation; your socio-economic status; your age; your life circumstances. We welcome you to St. Martin's because you complete us. Through our liturgy and hymnody; through candles and bells; through voices raised and brass played; through Word and sacrament---through all that we do, may God be praised. And may each one of us be renewed in the "good tidings of great joy" which is for all people!
Welcoming All, Growing Together, Sharing God’s Love, and Serving Christ with Energy and Joy!
