Summer Study: Clergy “Favorites”
Sundays in June, July* and August
This summer in Basic Bible various members of St. Martin’s Clergy are taking a week or two to share from their “favorite things.” While they may not be focusing on raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens (sorry to any “Sound of Music” lovers out there), they will be teaching on people, places, books, movies, etc. that have inspired them in their faith, encouraged them in their walk with Jesus and shown them something of the gospel. Why is the theologian John Stott worth learning about and why are his books worth reading? What can we learn about faith from Mr. Rogers? What does Taize, a French community in the south of France, have to help us hear the voice of God? Come to Basic Bible this summer and find out the answers to these questions and more!

Have you found yourself desiring a closer relationship with other parishioners while deepening your personal spiritual life? Join one of our Covenant Groups, small groups of 10 – 12 people who meet bi-weekly from September to May in parishioners’ homes. Meeting for approximately two hours on a designated weeknight, each group discusses the week’s Bible study as they forge new friendships in a pleasant and welcoming setting. Making a choice from a selection of study guides suggested by St. Martin’s Clergy, each group will study and discuss their particular choice for the entire year. For more information and to participate, contact Kathy Johnson at 713-985-3834 or
