St. Martin's Re-Opening Information

We will be starting in-person worship this Sunday, July 12 at 9am on the church grounds, outside under the tent.


We have been meeting as a team to ensure we are providing you a clean, safe and non-touch experience. We are happy to announce we will be holding in person worship at 9am through the months of July and August outside under the tents. We realize there are members of our congregation that are high risk and are unable to attend in person. We encourage you to attend the weekly service from the Diocese.
