Thank you
Many thanks to all those who helped make a festive observance of The Epiphany, especially to our Kings and their entourage, to All Saints' for the loan of their camel, and to all the Thrift Shop volunteers for their assistance in spectacularly outfitting the Magi.
A Virtual Bible Study opportunity!
Join with Episcopalians around the country in reading the Book of Romans during Epiphany 2019 as part of the Good Book Club. Forward Movement has broken the book down into daily readings which began January 7  (it's not too late to jump in and catch up!) and continue through Ash Wednesday.  
Daily readings and more information can be found  here.  The Thursday morning bible study will be discussing Romans during this season as well, so feel free to join them from 11:00 to 12:00 any Thursday.

On Sunday, January 27 there will be one service at 9:00 am, followed by the Annual Meeting.  There will be Sunday classes for children at 9 am. We plan to offer babysitting beginning at 8:45 am and a kids' brunch and supervised activities upstairs after church and through the meeting.
Women's retreat:  Friday March 15th to Sunday March 17th
This year's women's retreat weekend is scheduled for Friday, March 15th to Sunday March 17th. We have invited the women of All Saints', Harrison to join us and i f past years are any indication, it will once again be a relaxing, refreshing, and renewing weekend away.  

The retreat will be held at St. Marguerite's Retreat House which is part of the Community of St. John the Baptist, an Episcopal Women's Religious Order in Mendham, NJ.  We have reserved the entire retreat house, so we will be the only group there for the weekend. They have space  for 27 people,  so rsvp and reserve your spot now!  You can read more about the community and the retreat house at their website.  All of the bedrooms are simple, individual rooms with shared bathrooms.  Home-cooked meals are provided but we are welcome to bring snacks or other items to meet specialized dietary requirements.     


We will plan on arriving in time for dinner on Friday night and leaving after worship on Sunday morning.  We can carpool...arrangements for travel will be made once we know who is planning on attending and who can drive, but we will get everyone there!

The cost for the weekend is 200.00 per person and includes lodging and all meals.  If that is financially difficult for you, please let either Carol or Tami know....there is some scholarship money available.  Checks can be made out to St. Thomas with "women's retreat" written in the memo.

The Reverend Chris Jones  will be returning as our facilitator.   

Any questions?  Contact Carol or Tami.
