St. Thomas Youth (EYC) Go Hiking This Sunday!



This Sunday, June 25th, as long as weather permits, we’re taking the youth (rising 6th-12th grade) up to the Nature Trail on Green Mountain. Plan to meet in the youth room NO LATER than 3:25PM and we’ll head out from there. We will be back by 5PM to make it to church and join for dinner.  Pick up is by 6:20PM.

Join us every Sunday at 5pm for a "Come as you are" Holy Eucharist!


Every Sunday this summer, St. Thomas will continue to offer a more "Laid Back" worship service at 5pm in the Nave. Come join us for simple hymns from the Alleluia III hymnal, good sermons preached from the floor, Holy Communion, and (most Sundays) a simple dinner in the Parish Hall immediately following the Eucharist! Come as you are and invite a friend to join you for the 5pm Sunday Evening Holy Eucharist at St. Thomas.

Help Needed for Sunday Morning Refreshments



We need your help to keep the refreshments coming on Sundays following the 10:30 AM service. Please sign up for a Sunday to bring homemade cookies or store-bought sweet treats so that we can spend a few minutes gathering after worship. Please sign up using the poster in Information Hall. Thank you for helping us keep this vital part of our parish thriving!

Now, it is as important as ever for us here at St. Thomas to understand our unique identity in South Huntsville and how we are poised to engage with our growing neighborhood.
