Join Parish Event Planners – Make Parish Life Fun with PEP!

Parish Life Planners – known simply as “PEP” – are the heartbeat of the community. PEP members serve to create, plan and stage activities to promote fellowship through social interaction.

Many activities are closely tied closely to the church’s liturgical events calendar. PEP also plans activities to create more diversity and support the shared interests of the community.


PEP meets with Pastor Salying each year in January to plan a schedule of events and activities throughout the year. This allows PEP members to arrange for their participation and coordinate volunteer support as needed.

The annual pastor’s meeting is followed-up with once-a-month gatherings to strategize and work out the behind the scenes details of everything that comes together to make an occasion special.


PEP’s monthly meetings take place on the 1st Tuesday of the Month. Our next planning meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, March 6th at 7:30 PM – Disciples Room (Smith Education Building) – see Directions & Campus Map


PEP makes fun things happen at St. Thomas and is an important expression of the beauty and warmth of fellowship we experience as a faith community.

Come check us out – if you have a creative soul, a Can Do spirit, and find joy in sharing hospitality with those around you – there is a calling waiting for you to join in!

PEP members live up to their name – rolling up sleeves and having fun doing it…Come Serve with PEP 🙂
