Worship

St. Thomas Worship ServiceWorship is at the center of our lives as followers of Christ.  In worship, we experience the true presence of God.  We are filled and strengthened by the Holy Spirit, and sent back into the world refreshed and renewed. We gather weekly to celebrate God’s Word and the Sacrament of Holy Communion and to hear and experience God’s creative and redeeming love for the world.

Children are welcome and encouraged to attend worship and are invited to come forward for the Children’s Message. Activity bags are also available for use during the service. The service may also be heard in the Narthex (lobby) via speakers.
