Parish Work Day – Saturday, Oct. 13th

LET’S CLEAN UP FOR ADVENT

Join us on Saturday, October 13th from 9 AM – 1 PM for a friendly parish work day to enjoy fellowship with one another while we spruce up the campus in preparation for Advent and Christmastide!

THERE WILL BE NOURISHMENT

In gratitude for helping hands and our time together, lunch will be offered after the work is done.

SO, LET’S DO SOME CLEANING

As we approach Advent and Christmastide, envision our community time spent together to prepare our physical and spiritual house for the upcoming times of anticipation and celebration. In taking up our brooms, hammers, brushes and mops, we clean and tidy up the indoor and outdoor spaces, revitalizing their beauty and function while enhancing their sense of welcome to all. Through rolling up our sleeves together, we have occasion to experience spiritual renewal in a practical and meaningful way.

So, mark your calendars and make your way over to St. Thomas Episcopal Church – Saturday, October 13th – 9 AM to 1 PM.. You bring the elbow grease and we’ll do lunch.

Annual Parish Picnic – Sunday, June 3rd at Washington Park

Join us for fun, fellowship and fabulous food as we gather for our traditional annual parish picnic!!

WHEN & WHERE

We’ll meet on Sunday, June 3rd at Washington Park in Picnic Area #3, around noon or immediately after the 10:30 am morning service.

This site is to the left of our usual site between the ball field and the playground. It’s well-shaded but smaller than the location we’ve used in the past. Nevertheless, extra seating will be provided to accommodate everybody.

WHAT TO BRING

If you’d prefer your own seating, you can bring personal folding chairs for relaxing on the adjacent lawn areas.

RUB-A-DUB, WHAT ABOUT GRUB?

As usual, Parish Event Planners (PEP) will be grilling hamburgers (beef, salmon & veggie) and hotdogs. We will also have drinks available. Please bring a side dish to share to help complement the meal. Suggestions include snacks, salads, veggies, beans or rice, fruits, and desserts. We will be in the park setting up before the service, so you can drop your offerings off there.
