Live Chat during Worship

Want to feel more connected during Sunday service at St. Martin’s? Have a prayer request that didn’t make it into this week’s bulletin? Use the LIVE CHAT feature on YouTube during the live stream worship on Sunday Mornings at 10:30 am.
If you want to enter a prayer request, give peace, or comment on the music during the service, you can use the Live Chat feature during the live stream on our YouTube channel. We’ll post your comments at the musical interludes during the offertory or the postlude, or if it’s a prayer request at the appropriate time during the Prayers of the People. Using the Live Chat feature can help us feel more connected to our worship community.

Good News Garden

Good News Garden

In the summer of 2020, Eagle Scout Chris McSwain planned and built two raised beds and irrigation to help begin a community garden, and so our Good News Garden began!

The Episcopal Church, in response to needs created by the COVID-19 pandemic and with the guidance of Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, created the movement called “Good News Gardens.” St. Martin’s elected to join this important movement.

“We believe that one thing that love could do right now is call a community of people with the ability to plant gardens of all sizes and kinds together – from small pots of herbs to hundreds of acres of corn – in order to share the love of Christ through word and action, food and labor. We believe that one new and sacrificial act of love that we could offer is to commit to planting more, praying more, and proclaiming more, in order to share the loving, liberating, and life-giving Good News of God’s love with all people.”  –


St. Martin’s goal is to help provide fresh produce to 4Saints Episcopal Food Pantry, whose needs for supplies have only grown since the start of the pandemic. So many families have found themselves in urgent need of food, and 4Saints is able to help them through donations like this!

But more than that, this community garden will help to bring people back together in a shared mission of awareness and appreciation.  

Interim Rector Ron Pogue sums up the mission: “This project will be especially helpful at this time for parishioners who miss gathering at St. Martin’s for worship, prayer, study, and service.”  

Currently, we have five garden leaders: Norma Barbier, Kayla McSwain and family, Linda and Dick Seeber, and Liza Goodner who have been diligently working in the garden. We have already grown broccoli and lettuce and were able to donate green beans and small tomatoes. This spring we have planted tomatoes and okra, and plan to do more as the season progresses.

Get Involved!

St. Martin’s members or anyone else who wishes to be a part of this project are encouraged to join in the creation and maintenance of our Good News Garden. Youth members who participate can also earn service hours! 

If you are interested in being a part of the Good News Garden, please let us know! Seeding, weeding and general upkeep will be needed continually.


Please contact us or sign-up if you’d like to get involved.

Introducing a Practical Theology of Episcopal Evangelism
Are you interested in an Evangelism Study Group? One is in the works! Please contact Ron Hitchcock at or 972-741-4064 if you’d like to participate, or have any questions about evangelism.

If you invite God into your life, beware. There may be no going back. If you open your life to God’s Holy Spirit – if you dare to pray, with your heart, “Come Holy Spirit,” there is no knowing where the Spirit may lead you. This I do know: God did not create you to live life in the shallows, to fritter your life away. God created you to be fully alive. -Br. Geoffrey Tristram, Society of Saint John the Evangelist
