Live Generously

"All things come of thee, O Lord, and of thine own have we given thee." (1 Chronicles 29:14) That sentence is spoken every Sunday at St. Thomas Church. It's a beautiful way to say, "God, everything is yours, and when we give, we're not giving something that was ever ours."  The blessings we all have in our lives are all from God. And we are blessed in order to be a blessing - a blessing back to God, to others, and to the world. 

Why We Give

Here at St. Thomas Church, we invite all people to worship God through prayer, music, fellowship, communion, and giving of time, talent, and treasure. Because God gives love and life to us in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, we in worshipful response, give love back unto God. Scripture speaks of the giving of "first fruits" (Deuteronomy 26) as a way of presenting back to God the loving blessings that God has lovingly given us.

Re-commit    Re-spond    Re-joice
Stewardship Sunday is November 21st. It is that time of year when we re-commit ourselves to giving from our blessings and re-spond to God's prompting to give to others and the church. In this time of continued pandemic and uncertainty, we can trust in a God who walks with us. It is a time to re-joice in God's goodness and steadfast love. God is still at work in the world and we continue to be his hands and feet. One way you can contribute to God’s mission is through prayer and giving financially. You have been faithful in your giving in 2021 and we are deeply grateful. Please prayerfully consider a pledge for 2022.
