Help Still Needed!
We are still in the active growing season here in Colorado which means the grass is happily soaking up every drop of rain and growing, growing, growing! We like to keep our campus looking tidy and that means mowing! There are plenty of open spots available in August to mow the lawn. It doesn’t take too long on the riding mower and anyone over 16 can be trained how to do it!
Look for the sign up sheet in the narthex and help us keep St. Martin’s beautiful!
St. Martin’s is having fun and celebrating all June! Please join us every week as we praise the Lord and build our community.
Sunday, June 1st is “Graduation Sunday” where we acknowledge the accomplishments of all our students who are reaching a milestone – moving from elementary to middle school, from middle school to high school, graduating high school and graduating college.
Sunday, June 8th is our Pentecost Picnic following the 10:15 service. The church will provide pulled pork (smoked butt as Fr. Jim calls it), hot dogs and hamburgers, and lemonade. The community is asked to bring a side dish, dessert or other beverages to share. There is a sign up sheet in the narthex.
Sunday, June 8th and Sunday, June 15th is the St. Martin’s Food Drive. Please bring non-perishable food items to church on either (or both) of those Sunday’s. Food collected during the drive will go to Metro CareRing.
The St. Martin’s Supper Club will host a large group gathering on Saturday, June 28th in the Community Life Building.

Watch for more details regarding time and sign-ups. The 2014-2015 Supper Club will start up again in the fall.
Easter Alter and Flower Cross
Almighty God, who through thine
only-begotten Son Jesus Christ hast overcome death and opened unto us the gate of everlasting life:
Grant that we, who celebrate with joy the day of the Lord’s resurrection, may be raised from the death of sin
by thy life-giving Spirit;
through the same Jesus Christ our Lord,
who liveth and reigneth with thee
and the same Spirit ever,
one God, world without end.
What a beautiful Easter Sunday we celebrated at St. Martin’s! The abundance of fellowship, glorious spring blooms and blue Colorado sky certainly had us all in the spirit to celebrate the Lord’s resurrection!
In the St. Martin’s community our gifts are many and our challenges eased with sharing. Please join us soon and discover the strength, hope and faith St. Martin’s will share with you!
