Family Service (No Sunday School) – Nov. 3rd

FAMILY SERVICE

This Sunday, we are celebrating with a family service in the church at 10:30 AM in honor of All Saints Day in addition to our regularly scheduled early morning 8:00 am worship service.

Please mark your calendars, as there will be No Sunday School on November 3rd; classes will resume again the following Sunday, November 10th.

This is a time of sharing – considering what talents and gifts we may offer up to the Lord this coming year. At St. Thomas, we consider our gifts as a pledge of support for the spiritual and financial health, and well-being of the faith community.

STEWARDSHIP

In our mutual commitment as stewards, it is our prayer that we may welcome and extend grace, mercy and loving compassion to our neighbors mid-day Wednesdays and Sunday mornings, and provide hope beyond the church’s big red doors.
