St. Martin In The Fields Mission Statement is “Serving Through Faith, Praise and Good Works”.
St. Paul’s Lutheran Church food bank provides food boxes for over 60 families each month. In June we will be collecting canned foods for their food bank. This winter we collected cereal, dried milk, pasta and pasta sauces. You can bring you contribution to this worthy cause by bringing it to the Church on Sundays.
June is going to be a busy month at St. Martin’s. If you have some free time an outside cleanup day is scheduled on Saturday June 6th. Paint brushes, rakes and shovels are the tools for the day. On June 14th we will be celebrating a very unusual Holy Eucharist, an instructional Holy Eucharist. A “narrator” will explain everything that the priest is doing at the altar. So if you are interested in finding out the meaning of the ritual at the altar, put this on your calendar for 10am on June 14th.
Also on June 14th our potluck picnic will is held in the pavilion. It should be fun to enjoy the good weather, good company and good food. Just bring a dish to share and spend a pleasant afternoon with some new and old friends.
Looking for some bargains and good food? Our Annual Flea Market and Bake Sale is the place to visit. Searching for just the right “treasure?” It could be at our Flea Market. Hunger for some tasty bake goods? There will be plenty to choice from, including our famous Welsh Cookies. Bring your appetite and wallet on June 27th from 9am to 1pm. You can donate all your unwanted “treasures” or rent a space and sell them yourself. Contact Marlene at 868 5690 or Harriet at 868 3394 to reserve a space or get more information.
Planning for the Fall Festival
has begun. We welcome anyone interested in getting involved in this fund raising event to contact Patty. The Festival is a lot of work, but more helping hands will make for less work, more fun and hopefully a financial success.
Looking for some bargains in reading material? Stock up for your summer reading at St. Martin’s Book Nook sales. The Nook will be open from 10 a. m. to 2 p. m. every other Saturday for the rest of the spring and summer. Books for children and adults are available at prices from 50 cents to $2, with half credit for trade-ins. There is a free book section. You are sure to find just the book for that lazy day at the beach or the hammock in your back yard. There are close to a thousand books to peruse, something for everyone.
