Honoring veterans on November 10

St. Martin-in-the-Fields will honor veterans and the fallen in a special way on Sunday, November 10. The date, November 11 has special significance for our church, as it is the feast day of our namesake, St. Martin of Tours, who was once a Roman soldier. Around the world, November 11 is remembered as Armistice Day or Veteran’s Day.

Honor our veterans – bring a photo

If you are a veteran, please bring a photo of yourself, preferably in uniform, and place it on the table as you enter the church – this will be a personal way for us to see and understand you in your service. If you’re not a veteran but you have a loved one that served in the armed forces, you may bring their picture as well.

Service Sunday – serve our community

November 10 is the second Sunday of the month, so plan to help make sack lunches for Union Gospel Mission after our 10:30 worship ends. Come to the large east parish hall of the school building – there really are jobs for everyone of every age and experience as we work together in assembly-line fashion to make 100 lunches! This quick work puts you next to other servants where it’s easy to socialize, gets your hands busy, and gets your heart in the right place to meet the needs of others. And it only takes 30 minutes, so please join in!
