Music Notes by Denise

We have new LEVAS 2 hymnals!!!

You will find a new hymnal in your pew this Sunday.  With the help of a grant from the National Book Fund, we have purchased 80 copies of “Lift Every Voice and Sing 2” to use in our regular worship.  This LEVAS hymnal is a supplement to our blue The Hymnal 1982 and was compiled by the African American church in 1993.  Please open one up and look at all the hymns that are included.  We will be singing from this hymnal along with our blue hymnal each Sunday at the 10:15 worship service. Thanks to Doug Edmonson for writing and applying for the grant, and to the St. Martin’s choir for placing them in the pews for YOU!


St. Martin’s Music Festival ~ October 14th

Mark your calendar and plan to attend the first annual St. Martin’s Music Festival on Sunday, October 14th, at 3:00 p.m.  Our choirs will be here along with favorite musicians that you’ve heard and enjoyed before.  Clay and Julia McKinney will be playing their lovely strings, Anthony Blatter and Ben Silvermintz will share their beautiful voices, and our own dear Priest, Mother Leslie, will have the opportunity to share her instrumental and vocal talents!  We will celebrate the Joy of how music brings folks from many different walks of life together for a common purpose!!  If anyone would like to participate in the festival beyond being in the audience, please contact Denise Marsh at
