Join us between services at 10:00 am for Faith Formation Hour.
St. Martin’s welcomes all children, infants through high school, in all aspects of the church’s life.
We especially understand the importance and value of having children in worship with us and have created new programs to help families feel comfortable and supported during our services. The “Prayground” in the Sanctuary offers a fun space for children to enjoy quiet play during worship. A second quiet play area is available in the Narthex, and the Family Room (formerly the Nursery) is available for families with children to use during worship services, which will be streamed on a monitor. We encourage you to utilize these areas with your children and enjoy worshipping God together.
St. Martin’s also recognizes the family is the foundation of faith formation for our children. A new program called Faith-filled Families will be a support group and resource for implementing faith building moments in everyday life.
Every Sunday during the 9:00 am service we have a designated spot at the front of the sanctuary for the children of our congregation to have toys to play with, can see and hear the service better and to join together in a comfortable location with other young ones like them!
