This is Boy Scout Sunday!! We welcome all cub scouts and boy scouts to join us for worship at our 9 am service followed by a special coffee hour reception. Wear your uniforms!! This is also Souper Bowl Sunday. Read the column to the right to learn about it. Did you know that 42. 6 million Americans are considered very poor and live below the poverty level. Another 97 million are just above that level. That means that 48% of Americans are considered poor (taken from the latest census statistics).
Also, this week it Preschool Sunday- all preschoolers are welcome into the parish hall for a story and activity during the first part of the worship service. Church school will meet. After church, the Confirmation class will meet. There will also be an altar guild meeting after church.
The WARM meal will be prepared on Feb. 12- note the change in date this month.
Looking ahead: St. Thomas' will sponsor a Lenten program. Read the tab at the top of this page for more information.
