Everybody's Pub Theology is TONIGHT!

Sit down with Donavan, Jeannie, and Ranie TONIGHT, Thursday, April 27th, from 6-7:30 PM in a room just for us at PaPPo's Pizzaria, 7540 Memorial Pkwy SW, Huntsville, for great fellowship, good food, tasty drinks, and hearty discussion! We will discuss how different cultures engage around the person of Christ-- what does Christ look like in different contexts, from differing perspectives, and why do we have those differences. Text Jeannie and let her know you plan on joining us at 256-348-9918 or email Ranie at associate@stthomashuntsville.org.

Come learn about the important work of Patterson Place THIS SUNDAY!

Patterson Place goes BiG is a very “out of the box” innovative vocational community for adults with special needs.

A place where our Citizens with disabilities will continue to learn and work; being celebrated and empowered in a God-centered environment as they engage in meaningful work and service.

We want to change the way our world views this population by letting these individuals create beautiful, marketable items to sell to help sustain the vocational community they enjoy every day. They will become artisans, bakers, card makers, jewelry makers, and more.

Patterson Place goes BiG will move into Hier's Hall at St. Thomas on Tuesday, May 2nd, and will begin forming a new community on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 8:30am-3:30pm this Summer! You can learn all about Patterson Place this Sunday morning, April 30th, during a special presentation and Q & A with our own Emma Clark who will be leading Patterson Place goes BiG at St. Thomas. Emma will introduce us all to Patterson Place, beginning around 9:30am in the Parish Hall during the Christian Formation hour.

Come learn all about this important community this Sunday morning at St. Thomas!

St. Thomas has a new Youth Activity Coordinator! Welcome, Noah Bowen!

We are excited to add Noah Bowen to our youth program as our new Youth Activity Coordinator. Noah, a home grown product of St. Thomas’ youth program, is 24 years old. He has remained involved at St. Thomas and has assisted Jeannie as a volunteer for youth events. Noah also has led our acolytes and is a long time counselor at Special Session at Camp McDowell. 

An Invitation from Noah!

Hey y'all! Coming up on May 7th, we'll be having a bi-monthly youth event. This week, we'll do a pretty simple game day involving some indoor and some outdoor activities, weather permitting, with the 5 PM service and dinner to follow! 

We'll begin at 3:30 PM in the youth room and will conclude around 6:30 after dinner. Parents, feel free to join us for the service and dinner, we'd love to see everyone there!

Thanks, Noah

The "Laid Back" Sunday Evening Eucharist & Supper is Back! Every Sunday at 5pm!

Join us for our 'come-as-you-are' Holy Eucharist every Sunday evening at 5pm in the Nave! This informal, shorter worship service is slightly different from our Sunday morning Eucharists, with guitar music, a homily from the floor, and a more laid-back feel. All ages are encouraged to come and participate, and don't forget to invite your friends and neighbors! After each worship service, join us for a simple supper and fellowship in the Parish Hall. St. Thomas is very excited to bring back the Sunday evening Eucharist again, every Sunday at 5pm!

Support this Important Ministry of the Diocese: Sawyerville

Sawyerville needs our support! The Diocese seeks to build lasting relationships with communities that have been strained due to the tensions of race relations. For over 25 years the Diocese has sought to build a more reconciled relationship with the people of Hale County, Alabama. Each year the Diocese has offered a camp staffed by youth and young adults from all over the Diocese and Hale County to build relationships and offer programing to elementary aged children in the area. This year St. Thomas is collecting 50 beach towels and girls one-piece bathing suits to take to Sawyerville for the campers (most of whom do not own a bathing suit). Please bring your donations by Sunday, May 14 to the Narthex! If you have any questions please email Ranie at associate@stthomashuntsville.org


A big hug and many thanks to everyone who donated blood this past Sunday during our April Blood Drive! Life South collected 17 units of blood here at St. Thomas. Each unit could save three lives! You folks are the best! And you are very much appreciated!
