YOUTH AND FAMILY
Providing opportunities to grow in Christian faith, witness, and fellowship to meet the needs of youth, families, the congregation and the community
Our ministry goal is to provide youth the building blocks necessary to grow and deepen their faith and commitment to Jesus Christ. Our mission statement is: “Through Christ, we are here to love God and ALL people, share His word, serve others and grow together in faith.”
All 6th-12th graders are welcome to attend our events and we encourage everyone to bring a friend. Our youth group has a strong emphasis and passion to serve our local community as well as our global community. Some of our past service projects include Annapolis Immigration Justice Network Holiday Coat Market and Dinner, preparing and serving Lighthouse Shelter dinners, our week-long Service Camp in the summer and Rise Against Hunger Meal Packing Events.

Pictures from St. Martin's 2nd Annual Summer Youth Service Camp
Our 2nd Annual Summer Youth Service Camp was a huge success! The theme for the week was Fruit of the Spirit and making a difference in our community. Our youth, along with several adult volunteers, transformed our outdoor chapel in just one week. They also packed lunches for the Lighthouse Shelter and painted a grace sign for our church property.
