Celebrate Community with St. Thomas

AN INVITATION

We are a community of diverse individuals and families that gather to celebrate in worship and fellowship together each week.

Whether you’re exploring the Christian faith for the first time, coming back after some time away, been a part of a faith community your whole life or fall somewhere in-between, you will find a place of welcome here.

WEDNESDAY EVENING – CENTERING PRAYER SERVICE

Centering Prayer can deepen your spiritual life, helping to build peace and clarity. If you haven’t yet experienced God’s presence in this way, we encourage you to give it a try. This group meets every Wednesday evening at 6:30 pm in the Chapel. Learn more

SUNDAY SERVICES

Two worship services are offered every Sunday. The first is at 8:00 am for those who prefer a quieter expression of worship. The second service follows at 10:30 am and incorporates choral and instrumental music with a family-oriented focus.

COFFEE & TEA HOUR

Join us for time together to learn, to grow, to enjoy some uplifting time in fellowship…and on Sundays – to nibble on some good eats that follow during coffee and tea hour.

SMALL GROUP MINISTRIES

If you want to explore some of the broader community gatherings – small groups meet for men’s spiritual growth, women’s spirituality, craft-making, parish event planners, Bible study, liturgical arts, Book Club, choir & music, family ministry and 20s & 30s-something activities, to share goodreads, explore spirituality, offer hospitality, host events, and more. Check back each week either on the parish website’s homepage or in the weekly printed bulletins and Beyond a Doubt newsletter for the latest happenings.
