Giving changes us. The act of generosity takes the ordinary and transforms our gifts into something more, something holy. An essential part of the Christian life is to give back a portion of the many blessings we have received as an expression of gratitude and love. St. Thomas’ Church invite people of all ages to make sacrificial and meaningful gifts of time, talent, treasure to the glory of God and the building of God’s kingdom in our corner of the world and beyond.
