At St. Thomas' there are numerous ways to serve the parish and the community at large.
As a servant church, we embrace opportunities to share time, talent and treasure with others.
Christian Education is life-long.
St. Thomas’ offers learning opportunities for adults led by clergy and lay ministers 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. We are currently offering online learning and small group discussions using the Church Next curriculum. Please contact us if you are interested in joining a group.
