We Serve Together - through St. Thomas and in the wider community, seeking to follow Jesus in works of compassion and justice.
Jesus said that he came not to be served but to serve (Matthew 20:28). Service to others is part of following Jesus. St. Thomas members serve the congregation by leading in worship, teaching children, serving on committees, caring for our building grounds, and taking part in many activities that support our common life. We serve our members by providing care in times of crisis or transition. And we serve the wider community by supporting many outreach partners. Join us as we serve together.
At St. Thomas we take service seriously and offer many opportunities to serve both at St. Thomas and in the larger community. Each year we ask those connected to St. Thomas to make a Ministry Pledge in addition to a financial pledge. This form allows you to look over the variety of opportunities for service in worship, learning, outreach and more. Completing this form will let us know where you’re interested in investing your time and talent.
