We Are the Church Wherever We Are
Saints Martha & Mary has paused in-person worship because of the latest COVID-19 numbers in Dakota County. We are worshipping via Zoom, for the time being. We may not all be gathered in the same building, but at this time, when we need eachother so much, we are invited to worship together, from where we are – knowing that God can hear us all and can blend even distant voices into one song of worship. We're a church that seeks to love our neighbors. No exceptions.
We want you to be spiritually fed. To that end, consider making a prayer request using the form to the right of this article. And watch one of the most prophetic voices in Team Ministry, the Rev. Canon Lydia Bucklin, talk about the impact small churches like ours can have on our world. She's from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and as a "UP'r" she calls them like she sees them. Listen in. You will be glad you did.
And finally, this week, remember:
Lord God Almighty, you have made all the peoples of the earth for your glory, to serve you in freedom and peace.
Give to the people of your country a zeal for justice and the strength of forberance, that we may use our liberty in accordance with your gracious will, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, for ever and ever. Amen.
At Saints Martha & Mary we have a team approach. Each week you get to hear from a different voice. We believe different perspectives help our congregation see the many ways Christ's word and works are alive in the world. Remember, that you, too, can make a difference for others:
Christ has no body now but yours. No hands, no feet on earth but yours.

What We Stand For
The four pillars of Episcopal belief are Scripture, Reason, Tradition & Experience. We believe we are called to love everyone, with no exceptions. Our's is an ancient faith, but a modern one too.
Each week we have readings from the Bible and we listen for the inspired Word of God. Sermons (homilies) are based on the weekly scripture readings, but because the Good Book was written by humans we draw on knowledge and reason to interpret the Bible’s meaning—and not literal interpretation of every word.
