Join us as we read together the Gospel of John. Time-honored questions and a unique group process called Approaching the Gospels Together guide us into a fresh way of encountering Jesus in the Gospel text. Whether you have never read the Gospel of John or have read it many times, this approach allows the Gospel to meet you where you are on your spiritual journey. We will read the Gospel of John in order from beginning to end, but each session is stand-alone. No prior preparation is required, so you are welcome to come when you can.
For more information, contact Sarah Elliott at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join us at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church for an evening of prayer, song, and testimony for the thousands of young people descending on Philadelphia, PA for the March for Our Lives to demand an end gun violence.
Students and leaders from many faith traditions will lead this prayer service recognizing the breadth of trauma caused by gun violence, including community shootings, school massacres, suicide, and related traumas. In prayer and song, this gathering will honor those we have lost, acknowledge the pain we carry and lift up the need for healing for ourselves and our country. Together, we will call on the spirit of hope and love to carry us forward.
If you would like to volunteer during the service, please email ebower@stthomaswhitemarsh.
MARCH FOR OUR LIVES PHILADELPHIA – St. Thomas’ Youth are joining St. Paul’s and St. Matt’s in traveling to the march together. We will meet at St. Pauls’ Chestnut Hill beginning at 8am on Saturday, March 24th for bagels and Eucharist. At 8:45am we will head to the train station to arrive in Center City just before the march. Youth under 18 must have an adult with them and fill out a release form on the morning of the march. Look for your emails to sign up or contact Erika Bower at email@example.com.
“I am welcome here in God’s House!” As the opening song of this special service suggests, Family Table celebrates the hospitality and welcome that God intends for all of his children, regardless of age. Especially designed and planned for all, but especially for households with young children (this means grown-ups, too!), the Family Table experience is vibrant yet instructive, playful yet powerful, flexible yet valuing ritual, and downright joyful! Communion is celebrated each week of the year at Family Table, and families gather afterward for fellowship. The liturgy itself begins at 9:15am, and it is held in the New Chapel.
