Sunday School ready to visit Nursing Home this Week

Baking in the Kitchen last week.....


Every time we bake it always ends up being so much fun.  We made the most delicious cupcakes to take to the residents of Shore Acres Nursing Home this week. (Yes, we sampled them!)  Dressed in costume, we will visit this 120 bed nursing facility right down the road from us.




 Here's the plan:
  • We will meet 9:45 a.m. in the back of the Parish Hall and organize transportation.  We will need help with drivers so if you are able to transport children please call Judi Prime Sayles. (see St Thomas email for number)  
  • Children are invited to where costumes.  Parent discretion.
  • We will return to the church approximately 10:30 a.m. and children will be join respective Services.  Parents: please remember to sign in when you arrive and indicate your service preference.

Memorial Service


Dear Parishioners,
 
It is with sadness but also in the sure and certain hope of the resurrection that I inform you that Connie Long entered into eternal life early this morning.  Connie was a long time parishioner of Saint Thomas and served on the Altar Guild and Holy Folders.

The memorial service will be on Tuesday, October 16th at St. Thomas. A time has not been set at this time.


With hope in Christ,
John Suhar
