Greetings in the Name of the Risen Lord.

Welcome to St. Martin-in-the-Fields Episcopal Church. My name is Fr. Earle King, and I've had the privilege of serving as Rector at St. Martin's for over 25 years. St. Martin's is a wonderful place to worship and serve the Lord. Let me tell you a little bit about it.

Location

St. Martin's is located on Grand Island, about a half mile north of the intersection of Baseline Road and Grand Island Boulevard -- just north of Sidway School. There is ample parking, and we are handicapped accessible. Visitors are always welcome. 

About our Parish Community

St. Martin's is a growing congregation, with approximately 125 people at the combined services on Sunday morning. We are a diverse group, with all ages represented. All baptized persons are welcome to receive communion at St. Martin's. This includes youngsters. Often, visitors are surprised to find that virtually all our youngsters (including infants) receive communion. Youngsters are always welcome in worship. Many youngsters join in gathering around the altar during the Eucharistic prayer. We believe that we are a child-friendly church.
