Adult Ministries

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 Formation

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.

Parish Life

Parish Life Ministries provide opportunities for members of the congregation to serve God through active involvement in communal worship. Congregants share their gifts in many ways: singing in the choir, helping to prepare the church space through Altar Guild, ushering, reading the lessons, acolyting, and partaking in duties of chalice bearer.  In addition, church members take active roles in planning and hosting intergenerational activities, special celebrations, and welcome events.  We are an enthusiastic and talented community, and see Parish Life Ministries as a commitment to work together to proclaim the Gospel through actions and words.

Pastoral Care

At St. Thomas’ Church, we care for each other. Pastoral ministry is not limited to the clergy. We pray for those in need, visit people, make phone calls, send cards, offer flowers, deliver prayer shawls, bring communion, assist with rides, and help those who are not able to be with us physically to know that they are still a part of this community.
