We want you to be spiritually fed. To that end, consider making a prayer request using the form to the right of this article. 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.
Let me not wrap, stack, box, bag, tie, tag, bundle, seal or keep Christmas. Christmas kept is liable to mold. Let me give Christmas away, unwrapped, by exhuberant armfuls. --Linda Felver
That first Christmas changed a world and alters it again if we keep Christmas, not just on the day, but in the year, by what we do and say. you have made all the peoples of the earth for your glory, to serve you in freedom and peace. For that to happen, I--we--must believe not just in God in heaven, but God on earth, God in me and you: Love born in our hearts, practiced in the mangers of our world. It's up to us to keep the Christmas. For this we pray. Amen.
-Father Tom Garrison
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.
