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.

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.
