Good morning faith family. See St. Thomas’s Carpenter’s Helper newsletter for news and events information for the Second Sunday after Epiphany – January 16, 2022, Year A. This week, you will find an invitation to share a meal with ECM, and information about a special ecumenical service, on the eve of Martin Luther King, Jr, Day. It will be a service racial reconciliation and healing, attended by our Bishop Brown.

“Life’s piano can only produce melodies of brotherhood (and sisterhood) when it is recognized that the black keys are as basic, necessary and beautiful as the white keys.”- MLK, Jr.
The church office will be open by appointment only on Monday, January 17, 2022, for MLK, Jr. Day of Service. We will be out in the community striving to make beautiful music with our sisters and brothers of color, and listening intently to the important notes that they add to the song.⁠

If you are in this situation, please let the clergy know of your needs, pray for the church, and feel no guilt about your giving. But if you are able to give, options for giving include mailing a check to your church or online giving. See our Giving information.
