Education

Adult Education

Christian Education is life-long. St. Thomas’ offers a variety of clergy- led learning opportunities for adults throughout the year. Adult Education seeks to expand our knowledge of our Christian heritage, help us embrace our role as Christ’s representatives in the world, and grow spiritually in our commitment to the Living Word of God.

Youth Education

We assist in the spiritual formation of children and youth, receive and honor the gifts they bring, facilitate their worship of God and membership in our faith community, and equip them for ministry through instruction in our shared faith and participation in the church liturgy.

Sunday School

Sundays 9:30-10:30 a.m. for students in Pre-K through 6th-grade
Our Sunday School serves approximately 100 children between birth and confirmation. Teachers are volunteers from the parish (many of whom are parents). Teenagers also assist in the classrooms for younger children. The curriculum is Biblically-based and filled with meaningful, fun, and engaging experiences. The Sunday School seeks to introduce students to Episcopal liturgy, Bible stories, basic tenets of faith, and support students in their faith formation. Sunday School ends at 10:30 a.m. so children can celebrate Eucharist with the St. Thomas’ community. To register or volunteer for Sunday School, email Sarah Ehrman .
