What We Do
Many of the activities and outreach ministries of St. Thomas & Grace relate to food. Our Sunday coffee hours combine good food with fellowship. We do not charge set prices for our public suppers, thus providing opportunities for people to come together and socialize and through "good will offerings" help us raise funds for outreach causes locally and around the world. Our faith community garden raises vegetables for use by the local food shelf as well as parish and community members. During the pandemic we continued to have "coffee hour" after our Zoom worship and often people actually drank coffee or nibbled goodies. Our outreach to our local community this past year included a successful fundraising effort in May 2020 for the local Food Shelf (monetary donations coming primarily from within our parish family) and a drive-through cash and food collection for Food Shelf which saw amazing community support. The Vestry has made a commitment to hold three of these drive-through Food Shelf collections a year; after consulting the Food Shelf, we have agreed that January, May/June, and September are the best months and the specific Saturday will be chosen based on other activities in the community. Volunteers are welcome - contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
