St. Thomas Episcopal Church
The 5th Sunday after Pentecost

Today the altar flowers are given by Laurie and Paul Ahern to the glory of God and in memory of Rhys Ahern.
WELCOME to St. Thomas! We are glad you are here. Please join us for coffee after the 9:30 a.m. service. If you would like more information about St. Thomas, please fill out the “Welcome” card found in the pews and place it in the collection plate.
Today we welcome Dave Tacher as our guest organist. And, for a special treat, Ellen Sanders will be playing on the cello.
Join the Columbarium Committee this morning at coffee hour on the labyrinth. They will be happy to answer any and all questions about the Columbarium.
Adult Education this Sunday: “Why the Old Testament?” In August we will welcome back scholar Irwin Sentilles for a four-week series on the Old Testament. To kick that off, this morning Associate Rector Kathleen Bean will lead a discussion about what these ancient writings reveal to us about the nature of God and humankind, and how we can get the most out of this sometimes perplexing collection of stories, teachings, poetry, and prophecy. Join us at 11:00 in the Parish Hall.
There will be an open house at the Rectory for all who are interested on Sunday, July 14th, from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Please join us for a tour of this property and some light summer fare. The rectory is found at 321 Juniper, Twin Creeks, Elkhorn.
