St. Thomas’ is a vibrant church community in Owings Mills, Maryland. Each Sunday more than 250 people from varied walks of life and religious backgrounds gather together to worship and celebrate. We are on a journey together toward faith in God through Jesus Christ and we invite you to join us.
Children, youth, and family are an important part of our community. We have strong children’s and youth programs, including two children’s choirs, Sunday School classes, and Youth Group that train and equip our young people for confirmation and service. Two exciting and rewarding annual youth mission trips occur each summer and are a highlight for our youth.
Throughout the week the St. Thomas’ community is alive with activity. From building homes in Sandtown with Habitat for Humanity to cooking meals for Paul’s Place to visiting the sick and homebound, St. Thomas’ members look outward to make living faith a part of every day.
Established in 1742 as a “Chapel of Ease for the Forest Inhabitants” then living in the area, St. Thomas’ is a beautiful church on 52 acres of land, and has remained in service to this community and the broader metropolitan area for more than 260 years.
While we value our history deeply, it’s the people with whom we worship and serve that are the lifeblood of St. Thomas’ Church. We receive strength, inspiration and joy from each other and it is that joy – the love of Christ – that connects everything we do.
Today, we are a church of young families, teenagers, single men and women, empty nesters, retired people, and everyone in between. At St. Thomas’ we strive to create a nurturing atmosphere for our individual and collective Christian journey.
