St. Martin's Episcopal Church

Shady Cove, Oregon

Welcome to St. Martin's!

Located in beautiful Shady Cove, Oregon, just north of the winding Rogue River, St. Martin's is a small, inclusive Christian community that seeks to love and serve God and our neighbor in the Episcopal tradition. Our church family takes joy in gathering to worship, serve and break bread together in Jesus' Name.  We want to be good neighbors in Shady Cove, and we partner with individuals and organizations in the Upper Rogue to respond to the needs of the world around us with compassion and generosity. We take seriously Jesus' command to "love one another as I have loved you." In this time of great concern for our nation and world, we seek to be a healing presence for one another and the world around us.

Whether you are a seasoned Episcopalian, a first-time visitor, or fall somewhere in between, you are welcome at St. Martin's! We are comprised of and reach out to the young and the old, the seasoned and the newcomer, those who are married and those who are divorced, partnered and single individuals, widows and widowers, those who identify as straight and those who identify as LGBTQ, the wealthy and those with limited resources, and families and individuals from any racial, ethnic, cultural or faith background. We are of different backgrounds and experiences, and we value the differences that enrich our faith community.

St. Martin's is holding worship via conference call while coronavirus cases are high in Jackson County. We look forward to resuming in-person worship when it is safe, and also resuming all ministries over the coming weeks and months. 

Laundry Love is on hiatus until we can safely offer this outreach again. Our next large Food Pantry will be Friday, September 24th from 11 a.m. -- 1:30 p.m.. We sometimes hold smaller Flash Pantries during the month. Watch our Facebook page for notice. May this blessing that often concludes our worship be a blessing to you.

Life is short,
and we do not have too much time
to gladden the hearts of those
who travel the way with us.
So be swift to love, and make haste to be kind.
And may the Divine Mystery
who is beyond our ability to know
but who made us and who loves us
and who travels with us,
bless us and keep us in peace.  Amen.


Blessings to All!

Due to a high number of COVID-19 cases in Jackson County, St. Martin's is holding Sunday worship via conference call at 10 a.m. Our worship includes prayers, Scripture readings, sermon and singing.  We hope to return to in-person worship as soon as it is safe to do so. We also offer Morning Prayer via ZOOM on Wednesdays at 9 AM. For more information on how to join us, please e-mail or leave a call back message at  541.878.2166.  Occasionally we have livestreamed worship. Our Christmas worship is posted on our Facebook page (see the blue button below), or on Youtube at https://youtube/2dItTXJFhcg

Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with all who struggle through this difficult time, with our brothers and sisters who have lost much in the wildfires and by financial hardships due to COVID-19 pandemic. May the Holy Spirit bring healing and hope to our community. God bless you!

Food Pantry  Fri. September 24th from 11 AM -- 1:30 PM 

We offer as much healthy food as possible to our neighbors in need.  Fresh and non-perishable food will be offered in an outdoor drive-through format. We only ask for first name and number of adults and children in the household. If you drive, please stay in your vehicle and volunteers will bring the food to you.

God bless our community!

Our Mission

Our Mission is to provide for the spiritual, educational, and social needs of our congregation and the community. To nurture a positive relationship with Shady Cove and the greater Upper Rogue community, we respond with compassion to the hopes, needs and concerns of the world around us. We provide outreach services, space and support programs, ministries, events and activities. Compassion, dignity, justice, excellence, and integrity are our watchwords. The ministry of Jesus is our model as we strive to be steadfast in serving all, especially those in need. We pray that we may continue to be granted the strength, courage, and love we need to serve God, each other and the world.

Holy Week and Easter

Traveling through Uncertain Times

From the Vicar When I served as vicar of Holy Cross, Carlsbad, CA, our Sunday custom was to invite people to come forward for travel blessings. Every week, folks came to the rail, all sharing their travel destination to a supportive church family. As I made the sign of the cross on each forehead, we […]
