This is the 1st Sunday in Lent.  Church school will not meet because of school vacation week.  This week there will be a guest preacher- The Rev. Dr. James Jacob.
During the season of Lent, St. Thomas' will be participating in Lent Madness.  Anyone is welcome to join up.  For more information, follow the link on the right side of this page.
St. Thomas' collected $80 from the Souper Bowl of Caring collection last Sunday.  The money was sent to St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Flint, Michigan as it works to help the people of Flint get clean water and food.

This is the Last Sunday after Epiphany. Church school will meet.  This is Boy Scout Sunday and it is the Souper Bowl of Caring.
