You are Welcome Here!
Our Sunday worship services are at 8:00 am and 10:00 am. Here are some thoughts that may help you if you are planning a visit: Come as you are; we are a very diverse community as we tend to dress in every way. You will see some in blue jeans; others in coats and dresses. Our Parish has families with children, college students, young adults, couples with children who have left home, singles, seniors... everything and everyone. We are an inclusive community that is drawn from all over the region. Check out our article: "What to Expect When You Visit",
I'm New-How do I Join?
Strange as it seems, you really don't have to do anything special... but you may! Just come and worship and let us get to know one another. You do not have to join the Episcopal Church in a formal way in order to worship, attend classes or participate in activities. You may also donate support for the ministries of the church without becoming a member. Any baptized Christian - adult or child - may receive Holy Communion in an Episcopal Church.
St. Thomas' Church intends and attempts to be a diverse, inclusive community of Christian faith, hope and love. Anyone is welcome to visit or join us in seeking, encountering and experiencing God's grace in the sacraments and fellowship of the Church.
The mission of St. Thomas' Episcopal Church is to know and worship God, to build community, and to serve others.
I've never been to church before! I'm not sure I even believe in all this stuff!
That's okay... it never starts with belief anyway... it starts with relationships. When you start a new thing, say painting, you form a relationship with people... maybe you join a class. Then you start doing... following... getting help from others who know the craft. It is out of the doing... painting things... that you may find that you start to draw some conclusions about things. That's the way it works: form a relationship... do things together... beliefs will follow. So come wherever you are on your journey, and we'll start by getting to know one another.
