Outreach for July 2022

Beginning Sunday, June 19th through Sunday, July 31st  we will be collecting food items for the Somerset County Food Bank. 

We are also hopeful that casseroles can be delivered to SHIP during July. More to follow on that! 

Finally, we recently learned that the food bank receives eggs from a local farmer but they are delivered in crates. The eggs are then transferred to old, used cartons. Sometimes the cartons are used multiple times. So Outreach is asking that you save your egg cartons and bring them to Church. We will continually take what is donated to the food bank.

Confirmation & Reception – November 13, 2022

Bishop Stokes will be visiting us on Sunday, November 13 (St. Martin’s Sunday). On this Sunday youth and adults will be Confirmed by the laying on of hands by the Bishop. Newcomers who were confirmed in the Roman Catholic, Orthodox, or Lutheran Churches may be received by the laying on of the hands by the Bishop, thereby becoming a full member of the Episcopal Church.

If you wish to be confirmed (youth and adults), or if you are already confirmed and wish to be received as a full member of St. Martin’s, or if you are confirmed and wish to reaffirm your faith in a public way, see the links below for guidelines and class schedule.

This is the inaugural meeting of a new joint Episcopal Youth Group which will begin meeting once a month in the Fall.

Night of Mystery – June 4, 2022

We are planning a “Night of Mystery” that will be held in the undercroft with a potluck dinner. If you sign up today, you will receive your “suspect”. You can decide if you want to dress up like your suspect or not.

All the suspects gather in the undercroft on the night of the “mystery”. At some time in the evening, the lights will go out, and the “victim” will be revealed. You then will try to find out whom the murderer is by asking questions of the rest of the guests. Our mystery is “Murder in Margaritaville.” Randy will be our mixologist. Sign up here with what you will bring for the potluck.

Parish Work Day – May 22, 2022

We need all hands on deck to beautify our grounds and clean some areas of the church. Please bring your wheelbarrows, tree trimmers, shovels, weed whackers, etc., and wear appropriate clothing to work outside.

We also have some stairwells and closets to clean, if you would like to work indoors instead.
