The Church is the anchor of St. Martin’s Campus. The building’s Gothic design was based on the 13th century St. Elisabeth’s Church in Marburg, Germany. The spires reach 188 feet above the street and the four bells in the bell tower were cast by the legendary Whitechapel Bell Foundry in the United Kingdom.
Parish Life Center
The newly opened Parish Life Center anchors the eastern side of the Campus. The facility provides a larger flexible worship space that serves as many as 700 adults, students and children for the Family Table and Riverway worship services. Additionally, the space serves as home to a number of groups and provides space for small concert performances.
Bagby Parish Hall
Bagby Parish Hall provides an ideal gathering spot for St. Martin’s Parishioners and visitors. It is located next to the Cloister Garden and to the east of The Church. This facility is used for many on-campus events including the annual Joy of Giving market, adult Bible Studies, meetings, luncheons and more.
The Children’s Life Center
The Children’s Life Center, dedicated to the spiritual upbringing and education of our youngest Parishioners, is situated behind and south of the Parish Life Center. This building offers controlled check-in and entry to nurseries for infants and toddlers, classrooms for children, activity pods and multi-use space for adult gatherings.
Childcare is available here for infants through pre-K during Sunday morning worship services and some special events.
Noah's Ark Mosaic
Noah’s Ark greets children and families as they enter the Children’s Life Center at St. Martin’s. This beautiful hand-pieced mosaic is the work of Mellini Art Glass and Mosaics based in Pietrasanta, Italy.
With more than 70 years of creating rich masterpieces, Mellini represents some of the finest mosaics created today. Artisans worked with “smalti” mosaics, traditional hand-cut tiles, to complete this complex and playful piece of commissioned art that will capture imaginations for generations while telling the Bible story about Noah and the Great Flood.
A framing system, exclusively designed for St. Martin’s, allowed for the installation to be sectional while maintaining the historic methods of creating the design using a palette of more than 1,800 colors.
Located in the Activity Center, the Community Room is a versatile space reserved for large and small community activities. The multipurpose room also includes a functional kitchen.

The Music Center
Among the great blessings of St. Martin’s is its outstanding Music Ministry. The new Music Center, built off of the northern transept of the Old Church (now called Christ Chapel), brings all of the Music Ministry under one roof. The building provides an exceptional rehearsal space for our adult choirs. In addition, the Music Center houses a fellowship room, choral library, music storage and offices for the traditional worship music staff.
Student Life Center
The two-story Student Life Center building is located to the east of the Parish Life Center and hosts many student activities.
The Old Church at the west of the Campus is a reservoir of memories for many families of St. Martin’s. As part of Building for the Ages, the Old Church was re-imaged and now has a new life as Christ Chapel, serving as a location for baptisms, weddings, funerals and other special services.
Pastoral Care Center - Reception
