This is the Sunday we are collecting items for guests at the WARM Center.  The things needed are: small water bottles, juice boxes and individual cookie/cracker packages.  Monetary donations are also accepted.  Send a message to the church if you have something to donate.  Anything that is donated for the WARM Center this month will be counted as part of our collection for the Souper Bowl of Caring.  This is held on Super Bowl Sunday and is a project that strives to combat hunger.

COMING UP SUNDAY-JAN. 10

This is the 1st Sunday after Epiphany.  It is the day that the Church celebrates the Baptism of Jesus.  Throughout the Epiphany season (which lasts until Ash Wednesday on Feb. 17), the Church reads stories that tell how the identity of Jesus was revealed to the world.  In normal times, this is the Sunday that a parish would baptize new members into its body.
The annual parish meeting for St. Thomas' will be held virtually on Sunday, Jan. 31.
This year, our church will again participate in the Souper Bowl of Caring.  We will collect items on Jan. 17 for the WARM Center brown bag meals and use that total for our Souper Bowl donation.  If you would like to donate, send a message to the church email listed above.
The Sunday service will be at 9am.  The Zoom link is listed to the left.

COMING UP SUNDAY- JAN. 3

This is the 2nd Sunday after Christmas and the first Sunday in 2021!!  The lectionary gives us a choice of Gospel readings for this Sunday.  The one that will be used at St. Thomas' is the story from Matthew (2:1-12) that tells of the 3 wise men (also called kings or magi) who visited the baby Jesus.  The Feast of Epiphany, which is on January 6, celebrates the magi, but since the holiday falls mid-week, this Gospel passage is not always heard.  So this Sunday, tune into our service to hear about the kings and the star that they followed.  The link for the service can be found to the left.
