Children & Families
Children and youth are integral to parish life at St. Martin’s. Our children nourish our communal faith through their sense of wonder and awe, and challenge us to grow through their inquisitiveness and even doubt. We, in turn, strive to nourish their faith by welcoming them into worship, inviting them into leadership roles, and providing them with formation opportunities rich in biblical storytelling, spiritual exploration, liturgical instruction, and real-life integration.We also offer opportunities for parents and caregivers to be nourished, alongside and separately from their children!
Before the holiday rush begins, help your family make some spiritual space for the season of Emmanuel, God with Us. It all starts with Advent, which begins in just a few weeks on Sunday Dec. 1. Kairos classes become intergenerational events for the whole family.
Children are welcome in all of our Sunday services. Our 8 a.m. service is a simple spoken Eucharist. Our 9:15 a.m. worship.together service is a brief participatory liturgy geared toward 0-5 year-olds and their families. Our 10:30 a.m. main service is a traditional sung Eucharist with children’s chapel for kids during the sermon.
