The Sunday Forum is a well-attended series of lectures held each year on Sunday mornings from 11:15-12:15pm in MacColl Auditorium, which is located in the Parish House on the side of the parking opposite our church. These lectures have hosted nationally and internationally known speakers and have drawn many visitors to visit and join St. Thomas Church.
Since 1999, children and families served by Episcopal Community Services, Hope Gardens, and other community-based organizations have enjoyed a late October Sunday afternoon at the Barn, hosted by our parishioners. Taking full advantage of our Barn and open fields, we host hay rides, pumpkin hunts, face painting, delicious food, and other Fall activities for the kids, many of whom are Summer Camp alumni. We invite our adult guests to select and take home clothes, toys, and other items remaining from our Second Saturday Sales.

When we die, can we help others live? Parishioner Jackie Kelble lost her husband following a traumatic accident in December of 2012, leaving her to raise two children on her own.

Len Browna, who received a liver transplant, will share his story as well.
