This coming Sunday, September 9 Outdoor service at 10:00am Parish Picnic to follow
Hamburgers and Hotdogs provided Please bring sides, salads or desserts to share
All are welcome! Bring family, friends and neighbors
Some churches call it “Rally Day,” others call it “Homecoming.” Whatever we call it, this Sunday offers an opportunity for us to
come together, worship, and share the stories of our summer, and our hopes for the coming year. We celebrate the beauty of our surroundings, and the beauty of our life as the Body of Christ in this little corner of the world.
Let us pray:
O heavenly Father, who hast filled the world with beauty: Open our eyes to behold thy gracious hand in all thy works; that, rejoicing in thy whole creation, we may learn to serve thee with gladness; for the sake of him through whom all things were made, thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
BCP, page 814
It’s a celebration, and you are invited! Bring neighbors, friends, family – anyone with whom you would like to share St Thomas Church, and bring a favorite side dish to share. Hamburgers and hotdogs will be provided.
We will need some help with set up on Sunday morning – gather at 9:15 am We will also need help with clean up following the picnic. Many hands make light work!
Peace and blessing,
