A weekend retreat FOR high school students run BY high school students (and a few adults sprinkled in there as well).

The dates are November 10-12 and several of our St. Thomas students and adults are helping to lead this event. This weekend will change your life. Check out www.styg.com/signup for more info.

Stewardship Sunday is October 29th

posted Sep 28, 2017, 12:37 PM by St. Thomas Church

We believe giving of oneself financially unlocks a part of our hearts where God can do incredible work both in us and through us. Please prayerfully consider your pledge to St. Thomas for 2018. There will be a celebration luncheon after the 10am service. If you are able to attend the luncheon, please RSVP to the church office (920-725-5601) by October 22 so we can plan amounts.

Starting today, you will have an opportunity to post on the “Giving Wall” how you have been blessed by giving to St. Thomas or how you have been on the receiving end of blessings because others give to St. Thomas.

Film School

posted Sep 1, 2017, 8:39 AM by St. Thomas Church   [ updated Sep 28, 2017, 12:15 PM ]

On Sunday mornings, we take the spiritual formation of our 7th-12th graders very seriously. And that’s why we do Film School. We read from the scriptures every time in order to guide our discussions and we watch full length films (in 20-30 minute segments) and discuss how the story being told in the film either moves in harmony or dissonance with The Story that God is telling in the bible. (read Acts 17:23) All ages are welcome but please remember this class is geared for our middle and high school students. Our current film, Wonder Woman, will run thru October 22. www.styg.com/filmschool

Study of 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy and Titus - Please join Mary Evenson and be ready to study and discuss what these letters have to tell us about Leadership, False Teaching, and Relationships among Believers. We will be meeting in one of the classrooms adjoining the Parish Hall.  

The Great Divorce by C.S. Lewis - (Julie Hendrix, facilitator) Lewis explores what we value and cherish and how that differs from what Christ calls us to value - questions suggested by this book, among many others: Whom do we honor? How and by whom do we want to be honored? What is heaven and what is hell? (If you don't already have a book, books can be ordered for $8.74 through Julie if you send her a quick email at julia.hendrix@gmail.com)

Studies on Christian Living - 10-week study using Basic Christianity by John Stott. The theme of the book: “We must commit ourselves, heart and mind, soul and will, personally and unreservedly, to Jesus Christ and then go on to take our place as loyal members of the church and responsible citizens in the community. This is basic Christianity.” We look forward to lively discussions and significant spiritual growth. Jim & Peg Dickson, ph. 920-725-8237

Discerning the Will of God - by Henry Nouwen - Fr. John Peterson (facilitator) “Discernment is a spiritual understanding and an experiential knowledge of how God is active in daily life that is acquired through disciplined spiritual practice. Discernment is faithful living and listening to God’s love and direction so that we fulfill our individual calling and shared mission.” “Our God is a God who cares, heals, guides, directs, challenges, confronts, corrects. To discern means first of all to listen to God, to pay attention to God’s active presence, and to obey God’s prompting, direction, leadings, and guidance.” We will be using Nouwen’s book as a guide to the practice of Discernment. Register now so we can reserve a place for you and obtain a book.

Gospel Lesson Discussion - led by Charles Martin. Each Sunday we will discuss various aspects of the Gospel lesson of that day. Don't miss out on the stimulating and challenging discussion! We will meet in Fellowship Hall.

It's a blast and a wonderful way to fund-raise for the various missions and ministries of St. Thomas. We need 14 people per game. Volunteers must be 16 years old or older. Each volunteer must wear black shoes, black socks, and black pants. Our shirts are provided. We can car pool up but need to be at Lambeau 3 hours before kick-off and we're done in the 4th quarter. If you would like to volunteer and participate in this amazing opportunity to help support St. Thomas missions and ministries, please contact Anne Peterson at (920) 851-2686 or eannep524@sbcglobal.net as there are openings for each remaining game (pre-season and regular season and playoffs).
