Ministry and Values
Glorifying God By Serving People
It is through worship, fellowship, and educational opportunities, that we grow in our knowledge and understanding of God's grace, mercy and love. Led by His love and by the example of his servant Son, Jesus, we seek to serve people in our church, in our community and in our world. We want to glorify God in all that we do as we care for all of God's Creation. This is our mission.
Thomas Church has established Teams to carry out our mission and ministry in the congregation, community, and the world. Please see below for opportunities to get involved at Thomas Presbyterian.
