St. Martin's Lutheran Church, School and Early Childhood Center will "tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord"! The expanded and upgraded facility will:
St. Martin's has always prided itself in "telling the next generation," but it is now time to ask ourselves, "can we improve upon what we are doing to tell more people the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord?" Our school needs more classroom space to offer more services and reach more people. We need additional buildable area for growth if the Lord leads us towards future expansions. We need parking space and a clear entry to make our facility more accessible. The expanded and upgraded facility will, most importantly, equip St. Martin's for outreach and continued growth.
While we are blessed with a wonderful facility, a number of issues need to be addressed. Aging restrooms and classrooms need remodeling to meet codes and the roof needs replacing. Special needs services and piano lessons need their own spaces within the school instead of in the church. The expanded and upgraded facility will preserve and update the current facility to meet mandatory codes and include much needed security.
Many member and nonmember families need preschool and childcare before and after school hours, and during school breaks, because of work schedules and transportation issues. Their need presents St. Martin's with a ministry opportunity to share the gospel with dozens of additional families and children. The expanded and upgraded facility will house both year-round childcare for children ages three to fourteen and our current before and after school care program.
We ask you the members of St. Martin's to embrace this opportunity to "tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord" by supporting this project with your gifts, pledges and prayers. Your support will prepare St. Martin's to meet the needs of its members, the community, and future generations for years to come.
