Introducing Saint Martha's
Greetings, Prince George!
Gary announced a few weeks ago that Prince George Winyah is “planting a new church.” We are excited to reveal the name of our church plant: St. Martha’s, formerly known as Children’s Church, is coming soon! St. Martha’s will take place during the 9:00am service for children ages K – 5th grade. Children will be checked in before church, escorted to the Bourne Building after the Collect of the Day, and return at the Passing of the Peace.
The vision is for children to See, Hear, Feel, and Know the love of Jesus during their St. Martha’s service. The service will feature four main pieces, all of which are designed to instill this vision: Liturgy, Teaching, Prayer, and Music. Children will see God’s Word and the Anglican liturgy, hear teaching and sing together, feel God’s love through activities and prayer, and grow in their knowledge of the Gospel.
St. Martha’s is named after Martha of Bethany, a character we meet in the Gospels. Our Prayer Book calls her a Companion of Jesus, and we hope St. Martha’s is a place where kids become friends with Jesus like she was. Please pray with us for this exciting new time in the life of our church!
Blessings in Christ,
