Here are some ways that St. Martin’s follows Jesus’ commandment to love our neighbors
God of Love, open our eyes and ears to perceive you at work in creation, the church, and our parish. Fill our hearts with your love that we may reach out in love to others. Stir up our imagination with your Holy Spirit that we may find new ways to live into life with you.
Give us a vision of your mission that we may share your love and your spirit in all the places where we work and play and worship you. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
St. Martin’s started a GOOD NEWS GARDEN in spring 2021 with the Episcopal Church Good News Garden Ministry. Veggies to “feed our sheep” – come and see!
Our PERSONAL CARE KITS MINISTRY to the Lebanon Soup Kitchen on the last Friday of the even-numbered months has a 20-year history of helping the needy in Lebanon, with support from the parish, from the Diocesan Commission on Poverty and Homelessness, and from the Siltez Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund. Thanks to all who help us help our community!
