We at St. Martin’s are committed to providing a loving, happy environment that helps our children learn about the Christian faith by actively engaging them and their families in every aspect of the church community.
During the summer of 2022, the children participated in a craft table and focused on the fruit of the Spirit to echo messages of Christian growth. Throughout the week, kids reflected on the fruit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control) and contributed their weekly craftwork to create a masterpiece.
From September through November 2022, the children’s church program followed one of the lectionary readings used each Sunday at St. Martin’s. We focused on what matters to the growth of Christian life and Jesus’ ministry to various persons.
In December, we resumed the in-person Christmas pageant, the first in-person pageant in three years. Seventeen children, teens and adults worked together. It was wonderful. Here are some photos from previous years.
Youth Group – Martin’s Basement
St. Martin’s teenagers are active members of the service on Sunday morning, serving at the altar, helping with live streaming a service or assisting in the Church School. The youth group meets on the third Sunday to learn about the bible and discipleship through group discussion with the aid of videos and movies. We also eat a lot of snacks. Watch the Weekly Calendar on this site for meeting details.
