Children’s Ministry

We consider ministering to your children not only a calling, but also an honor and a blessing. Our belief is based on Deuteronomy 32:2:

“Let my teaching fall like rain and my words descend like dew, like showers on new grass, like abundant rain on tender plants.”

We don’t underestimate the importance of a child’s spiritual life and look forward to nurturing that all year long. Please join us, serve with us, and watch the children grow in God’s love with us.

Email Holli to subscribe to the Children’s Ministry electronic newsletter–it’s the best way to learn about events particular to preschool and grade-school children, and upcoming events specific to younger families.

St. Martin’s Children’s Ministry has so many opportunities for fun, fellowship and faith as we nurture the spiritual growth of our kids. Sign up to receive our e-newsletter and follow our Facebook page to learn more about why growing kids’ hearts in the knowledge of Christ is not a job duty; rather it’s a privilege that we share together.

Acolytes

The order of acolytes is one of the most ancient ministries in the church. The word “acolyte” means “follower” or “one who helps.” In addition to carrying a cross and banners during the service, acolytes also read lessons and prayers, serve as chalice bearers and assist with the offertory. These are important and vital roles that are central to our worship at St. Martin’s, and help to develop a sense of reverence and understanding for the tradition of the Episcopal worship service.

The St. Martin’s Acolyte Ministry requires a one-year commitment. Depending on the number of acolytes, you will serve one to two times per month.

Students in 3rd–5th grades are invited to serve at our Family Table Sunday worship service at 9:15 a.m. in Bagby Parish Hall.

If you would like to serve as an acolyte, click the button below to sign up.
