Outreach Ministries and Support
The Episcopal Book of Common Prayer asks the question:
Q.What is the duty of all Christians?
Answer. The duty of all Christians is to follow Christ; to come together week by week for corporate worship; and to work, pray, and give for the spread of the kingdom of God.
The membership of St. Thomas is spreading the Good News about the kingdom of God through the following local ministries. Click on the ministry in Blue to learn more.
