For those of you who missed it, we recently celebrated a wonderful service of confirmation and reception with the family and friends of eight of our young people who were confirmed and two adults who were received into our Episcopal community. Bishop Chilton Knudsen brought Deacon Cindy Christopher to assist her, and the church was filled with the Holy Spirit. It was exciting to witness such a marvelous event, and even more exciting to see what our newly confirmed and received members will bring to St. Thomas’ in the years to come.
While we welcome the efforts of newer members in our midst, many of you have multiple talents to offer today. Is there something you’ve often thought you’d like to do but never tried it? Are you curious about how the Altar Guild sets up for weekly services? Have you thought about how your weekly pledges are accumulated into our treasury to do the work we at St. Thomas’ strive to do in our community? What about helping with mass mailings that go out to our fruit customers or parishioners from time to time? Or do you enjoy gardening or painting? Is there a particular project or event you’d like to help with? As the saying goes, “Many hands make light work.” Is it time to put your hands to good use at St. Thomas’? If you don’t know where to start, you can start with me. I’ll be happy to discuss your talents and help you decide where you might help at St. Thomas’.
