There are many ways to belong at St. Martin’s.
Everyone is welcome to worship and participate without exception.
If a newcomer wants to become a Voting Member of the Parish, we ask for a commitment to our common life through regular participation in worship, prayers, gifts and service. We believe that life in community is a gift from God and an essential element in spiritual growth. We also believe that this gift grows in potency as we grow in commitment to life together and common mission.
Voting Members can also serve on the Vestry (Church Council), represent the church in the Diocese, and of course vote in annual parish meetings.
Join the Rector for a freewheeling exploration of the Episcopal branch of Christianity on January 28th from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the Library. Childcare will be provided in the Houston Room and we encourage families to attend, with or without kids.
Your questions will guide the class as we discuss the way we worship, sources of teaching authority in the church, commonly held teaching and social ethics in the church, as well as how we organize ourselves and how one might get involved in a meaningful way. This new format is an experiment to see if we can make this orientation available to a greater variety of newcomers to our community. We will end our day with pizza for the kids and homemade soup and bread for the adults.
