Parish Forum

Parish Forum is our 10:00 a.m. Sunday morning program in which a variety of speakers from within the congregation and outside the parish are invited to engage us in a variety of topics among which are spirituality, ethics, theology, liturgy, and social justice.  The Parish Forum also offers opportunities for parish members to share their stories as a way of getting to know one another better and build community.

Forum Hour at St. Martin’s is an opportunity to equip our community for ministry and mission and to have the conversations we need to have as a parish to develop our work together. Please make time to come to forum to help build our community toward our goals!

PA-IPL Partnership with St. Martin’s
Alison Cornish, executive director of Pennsylvania Interfaith Power & Light, will explain the organization’s work engaging people of faith in responding to climate change and introduce a new initiative with St. Martin’s Climate Action Team.

St. Martin’s is a congregational member of Pennsylvania Interfaith Power & Light (PA IPL). Learn more here about the cyclists who will be biking from State College PA to Washington DC, beginning May 19, to spread the word about climate change in small towns along the way and ultimately carry our concerns (and signed postcards) for our climate to our congressional representatives and senators.

Memorial Day Weekend: No Forum

June 4

Final Affairs Fair
Be a good ancestor; get your affairs in order now! Led by the Planned Giving Ministry. A great gift of love we give to our relatives is to have our affairs in order at the time of our dying and death. Using the 5 Big Questions tool we will help you start the key planning discussions in your family as you plan your final affairs. We will look at everything from planning your own funeral, to living wills and advance directives, to estate planning and planned gifts. Once you have children you need to be engaged in these questions, so all ages are encouraged to attend.
