Since 1908, St. Martin Lutheran has been a church home to many in the community. With deep roots in the German Lutheran tradition, the church continues to thrive well after a century and has recently become one of the most ethnically diverse congregations in the ELCA. On any given Sunday, you'll see the church's founders' descendants sharing pews with new faces. We continue to evolve and grow as God leads us.
We celebrate Holy Communion every at both services every Sunday. The pastor will give specific directions for distribution, but here's some helpful information:
- Communion at St. Martin Lutheran is open to all baptized Christians.
- Let someone in a white robe know if you would like Communion brought back to you.
- If you would like to come forward for a blessing, but do not wish to receive Holy Communion, simply cross your arms before you as a sign to the pastor.
Remember that "fasting and bodily preparation are in fact a fine external discipline, but a person who has faith in these words, 'given for you' and 'shed for you... for the forgiveness of sin' is really worthy and well prepared". (Luther, Small Catechism)
