3 p.m., 5:30 p.m., 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. The Church
The Parish Choir, Gloria Dei Organ, brass and tympani provide the perfect setting for the celebration of our Lord’s birth. As the sun sets in the west, the lights shining through our beautiful stained glass windows set the mood of wonder as we celebrate the triumph of light over darkness with the first of our traditional liturgies. Seating is more readily available during the 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. services.
If balcony seating or parking a distance from The Church causes difficulty for you and your family, please consider attending one of these services later in the evening.
Overflow parking for all services has been arranged at the garage on South Post Oak at Riverway. For those who need assistance, golf carts will pick up pedestrians from this parking garage, as well as from the parking lots on Woodway and near Regions Bank.
Christmas Day Monday, December 25 11 a.m. The Church
Holy Eucharist; traditional service with hymns, anthems and full Choir
After opening your Christmas presents, bring your family to Church and celebrate, “for unto us a child is born; unto us a son is given.” The Choir will be accompanied by the Gloria Dei Organ.
The Christmas Offering is a longstanding St. Martin’s tradition. We truly have so much for which to be thankful, and we are blessed to be able to share our gifts with others in the community through this Outreach offering. Your generosity, especially this time of year, will bring hope to others. Envelopes are available in the pews and Church information display racks, and can be placed in the offering plate during the Advent and Christmas worship services.
