We've Something for Everyone
St. Martin’s offers several different worship styles, as there is no one “right” way to praise God. While our worship is relatively informal, we have a deep reverence as we gather to pray and to praise, to hear the Word of God, and to take part in the Eucharist. “Eucharist” is a Greek word which means thanksgiving. We believe that Christ is present in the Eucharist, and that this is the primary sacrament in which we live as the Body of Christ in the world. A soft play area enables parents and distractible young children to remain fully engaged in worship.
St. Martin’s worship offers an experience of the Holy. We come to receive solace and be strengthened for the service of God in the world. In the Episcopal Church, the way of Christian faith is beautifully expressed in the Baptismal Covenant found in the Book of Common Prayer. We entered into this covenant with God at our baptism, and renew it regularly. In particular, we promise to strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being.
