Zoom with Us on Palm Sunday – Jesus Triumphal Entry – March 28

Welcome to ZOOM worship at St. Thomas.

This Sunday is March 28, 2021, Palm Sunday and the Sunday of The Passion.

Link to the Service Bulletin here.

This Sunday at 10:00am, you are invited to join us for open conversation before worship begins at 10:30 AM. 

You are encouraged to decorate your Zoom space with Palms or any other greenery.

Now that most of us know how to use Zoom, the half hour before service usually dedicated to trouble-shooting will also be an open time to connect with one another and with the pastor.  

All are welcome.  Just sign in as usual.

All others, at 10:20-10:25 AM Sunday, please connect to our worship meeting.

There are two ways to do this:

1.  by computer or smartphone (video and audio):

You may access our ZOOM meeting on the following link:

2. by telephone (audio only):

Dial +1 669 900 9128        Meeting ID: 826 9002 5101

When prompted for a participant number, touch the pound key #

Notes for dial-in users: *6 (star 6) to mute/unmute the audio from your phone to the meeting. 

This doesn’t stop audio from the meeting to you.

*9 (star 9) raise your hand to (hopefully) let someone else at the meeting know you’d like to speak. You may use *9 again to lower your raised hand. Actual connection time may take several minutes; please be patient.

Once you are connected, your face (or phone number) should appear in a square on your screen, as will the faces of others who have signed in, including Pastor Salying.

Note: For the sake of audio clarity, your mic will be muted on entry.

We will begin with introductory remarks, announcements, and then worship with Morning Prayer together as one large body.

After the liturgy, all are invited to stay for a community gathering; depending on the day, it will either be at-large, in large groups, or as a special event.

You may print the order of service from the attached document, OR you may follow along when the order of service appears on the screen.

When all are ready, the officiant will begin.

The Adult Formation serves to increase our knowledge, understanding, and appreciation of the Bible and to help us apply the lessons we learn to our lives  so that we may grow and mature in our Christian faith.

For the latest news regarding future studies, please check back with our website and/or the weekly service bulletin for upcoming offerings.

Family Ministry offers weekly online Children’s Ministry

Family Ministry gathers online on Thursdays at 4:00 PM for Children’s Ministry.  Our time together is focused on Christian formative education mixed with some fun! Note that the Children’s Ministry class previously scheduled for June 4th, 2020 is cancelled due to time conflicts with so many of the children still being in school. We plan to restart the following week. 

To participate, please contact the group’s host – Sue Beckham, Family Ministry Director via the Parish Office  for details if you would like to join the group.

Sue’s contact details are also available in the weekly service bulletin.

Meets online the 2nd and 4th Saturdays (9-10 AM on your computer) to explore where the Scriptures lead us and on alternate Saturdays to check-in with everybody at the end of the week (this also starts at 9 AM).

We invite all men (even those not a part of St. Thomas) to join with us for fellowship and good discussion.  And yes, you can be in your pajamas! 

Our Zoom meetings are password protected so you’ll need to connect with Chris Schmidt, the group’s host via the Parish Office  for the Zoom ID if you are new to the group.

Chris’ contact details are also available in the weekly service bulletin.

FUN
Book Club

We typically meet (online at this time) the last Tuesday of the month at 7:30 PM. 

Our desire is to share and discuss good reads that broaden our minds and understanding of the world in which we live. We have an appreciation for each other and literature coming from a variety of genres.

Please check with the website and/or weekly service bulletin for current offerings.

If you are new to the group and would like to join, please contact Dorothy Furgerson, the host via the Parish Office for the Zoom ID.
