We had a fabulous liturgy last Sunday for Welcome Back Sunday.  There were eight children under age 4 in attendance and the room was filled with lots of joy and energy.

This is the 15th Sunday after Pentecost (Proper 18).  We are thrilled that we have some new steps that lead into the parish hall.  The old concrete steps were crumbling.  Thanks to the donations of many parishioners, we were able to replace them with some new, easy to climb stairs.  The railing will be installed soon, too. Things are gearing up at St. Thomas' for a busy fall.  On Sunday, Sept 16, it is WELCOME BACK SUNDAY!  We will welcome back families who have been away in the summer and invite visitors and newcomers to join us.  Church school will start that day.  We have a new curriculum for a 1-room classroom to incorporate all of the students.
On Tuesday, Sept, 18, we will begin a new program called TUESDAY TUTORING.  This will run every Tuesday from 2:30-4:30 at the church.  Local educators will be available to help middle school and high school students with their homework.  Parent permission is required for this program. For more information, call 749-2679.
On Saturday, Sept. 29, the diocese will sponsor a Safe Church Training session at St. Thomas.  Read the column to the left for more information.
