Music

Choir

Worship is an integral part of life at St. Thomas. Our choir is lead by Dr. Maria Corley, an accomplished pianist and local musician. The choir helps lead worship at our principal service at 10:00 a.m. The group rehearses on Thursday evenings from 7:00-8:30 p.m. during the months of fall, winter and spring. Choral selections include sacred music of every kind, ranging from medieval to contemporary. Singers of every age and ability are welcomed and included!

Instrumental Music

Musicians from the congregation and community are regularly included in worship. The sound of trumpets, strings and other instruments such as guitars contribute to the beauty of worship. Music selections are varied and include everything from the traditional to gospel favorites.

Outreach

There are many ways that we share the love of Christ in our community, both locally and globally. Whether we are collecting shoes and/or underwear for the underprivileged, Chasing Down Hunger during the annual food drive, or collecting boxes of food each Sunday for the foodbank, we do it in the name of Christ and for Christ. Prison ministry, refugee support, outreach to the addicted and supporting the Central American Relief Efforts are just a few of ways we give back. If you want to help us do more, please contact Deacon Jane Miron.

Fellowship

When it comes to fellowship, St. Thomas has something special. Quite simply put: we love to be together. And we love to eat. We are nourished by the gifts that God gives to us and we love to share. Newcomers are always welcome and encouraged to attend the many events hosted during the course of the year. Or consider joining one of our groups, like the Men’s fellowship group or Sisters in the Spirit.

 

Spirtual Center

The mission of the Spiritual Center is to provide a nurturing environment for persons seeking to awaken, explore and deepen their spirituality and to provide opportunities for spiritual growth, healing, and scriptural holiness. No matter who you are, what questions you have, or what faith tradition you follow, we invite you to come to the Center to explore, experience and engage. We offer workshops, classes, day-long retreats, and prayer walks that provide an unintimidating introduction to the riches of the Christian spiritual tradition, as well as opportunities to discuss broader issues of meaning in dialogue with thinkers and practitioners from other religious traditions.

Contemplative Prayer

All are welcome in the quiet space of our chapel, or the beautiful and serene landscape of our labyrinth to pray. Contemplative prayer happens in many ways. If you are interested in learning more, we encourage you to contact KAIROS, a spiritual community with an office on the St. Thomas campus.

Labyrinth

The use of labyrinths to facilitate prayer has a long tradition in Christian history. Our labyrinth is open during the daylight hours for anyone to use. Moonlight walks are scheduled during the summer months.
