This is the 5th Sunday after Epiphany.  Church school will meet.  This is an exciting Sunday at St. Thomas for two reasons.  It is Boy Scout Sunday and we will welcome scouts and leaders from some local troops.  It is also Super Bowl Sunday which means it is the Souper Bowl of Caring.   See the post on the right to learn all about it.  At St. Thomas, we will have a soup pot out and ask each parishioner to donate $1.  This year our contributions will be given to Church Beyond the Walls in Providence.

This is the 1st Sunday after Epiphany (learn more about the season by clicking here).  Church school will resume.  During coffee hour after worship, we will have a discussion to talk about parish goals for 2018.  All are welcome to attend.
In December, the congregation collected 15 gifts for children and families in the community.  In addition, there were 95 pairs of socks that were donated for distribution at the WARM Center.  Thanks to all who took part in these efforts!
