At St. Martin’s-in-the-Field our vision is “to gather as a welcoming community of Christ, called to love and serve God, our neighbors, and each other, in joyful celebration of God’s presence in the world.”

Rooted in Christian Formation

Our parishioners and clergy have been at the forefront of bringing Christian Education to the people of St. Martin’s. Christian formation or spiritual growth, is a core value for our adult congregation. Classes such as Education for Ministry (EFM), Wednesdays Together and Sunday Adult Forums strengthen our connection to our Episcopal roots.

Currently, our Sunday School for children ages three through fifth grade uses the Living the Good News and Godly Play to engage and delight our children. Journey to Adulthood continues to draw our youth (in grades six through twelve) into conversations about God.

Serving through Outreach

Another vital aspect of St. Martin’s ministries is our outreach efforts. Our members are encouraged to share their gifts and talents with others through our ministries. Some of our Outreach includes our support of Paul’s Place, Fouse House Shelter for the homeless, Holiday Sharing, Winter Shelter, Arundel Habitat for Humanity and many more.

Our parishioners have a rich history of participation. We were recognized as Parish of the Year in 2002 by the Diocese of Maryland, a fitting testament to the spirit and commitment at work at St. Martin’s.
