COMING UP SUNDAY- SEPT. 27

This is the 17th Sunday after Pentecost (Proper 21).  The outside services have been a great success and it looks like this Sunday the weather will be perfect again.  Everyone is welcome to come and join us- send a message to the contact information at the top of this page for all of the details.  There is a photo on the church Facebook page from our joyful worship service (see lower right of this page).  This week we delivered a carload of drinks and foods to the WARM Center.  Thanks to all who donated, including the parishioners from St. Elizabeth's Episcopal Church in Hope Valley.

COMING UP SUNDAY- SEPT. 20

This week is the 16th Sunday after Pentecost (Proper 20).  It is the Sunday in the month that we collect food for guests at the WARM Center in Westerly.  The items that are needed include- small water bottles, juice boxes or individual packages of cookies, crackers, etc. If you have items to donate, you can bring them to worship on Sunday, or send us a message.  

We have now had 11 consecutive Sundays with sunny mornings for our outdoor worship service.  Little jackets are needed now, but it is still a safe beautiful way to pray, listen to music and receive Eucharist.  All are welcome!  If you would like to join us, send a message to the email address listed under the Contact Information tab.

COMING UP SUNDAY-SEPT. 6

This is the 14th Sunday after Pentecost (Proper 18) and the beginning of September.  The summer Sunday mornings have been perfect for worship and with any luck, this weather will continue through the rest of this month.  There is an outdoor worship service every week with Scripture readings, a sermon, Eucharist, and keyboard music.  This service is live streamed or you can join in person.  If you want all of the details, send a message to the email address in the Contact Information tab listed above.
Church school classes will not meet this Fall. Instead, we will offer Church School Grab and Go.  This is a brown bag form of Christian education for children and adults.  Stay tuned for more details- or come to church this week to get your bag!

COMING UP SUNDAY- AUG. 30

This is the 13th Sunday after Pentecost (Proper 17).  There have been 8 sunny Sundays in a row this summer which has allowed us to enjoy outdoor worship services on our church lawn. Parishioners bring their own chairs and masks and everyone sits a safe distance apart.  Even though there is no hugging or coffee hour, we are glad to see one another and share air hugs.  All are welcome!  If you want more details, send a message to the email address in the contact information.
Our neighbors down the street at RICAN have done a little renovating.  They have a food pantry available (donations accepted!) as well as a thrift shop and newly designed used clothing boutique. They are open Tuesday-Saturday from 10-5.

COMING UP SUNDAY- AUG. 23

This is the 12th Sunday after Pentecost (Proper 16).  The weather on Sunday mornings has been perfect for worship for the last 7 weeks!  The congregation is grateful for the outdoor lawn and large shade trees that have enabled us to meet outside.   St. Thomas' has a new project we are calling "Can you SPARE CHANGE for Church?"  Many of us have coins scattered around the house in jars, couches, under car seats and in pockets.   From now until the end of September, we are going to collect coins.  There will be a big container at church on Sundays so you can bring them with you and pour them in.   We will cash all of the coins in at the bank.  This project will help alleviate the coin shortage in the nation- and it will help give our parish budget a little boost. Bring them to church on Sunday morning.  Or you can donate to our congregation using the PayPal donation button in the top right of this page.   If you want the details for worship, send a message to the email address in the Contact Info. tab.
