The Social Committee, affectionately known as The Blue Aprons, brings the St. Thomas' family and our friends together in casual, friendly social gatherings and events that take place in our Parish Hall, a parishioner’s home or other locations in our community. The Blue Aprons feel Parishioners and friends who have fun, socialize and eat together, with a few prayers and some singing thrown in, “stay together."
The Hearts & Hands ministry involves the entire parish. Food is provided for shut-ins, any special celebrations in our church, and for funeral receptions. We also host the Hospice Candlelight Vigils for the Wharton County community in both the spring and the fall.
Flowers on the altar are given for Sunday worship by church members. After church, these flowers are delivered to someone in our church or community who is ill, lonely, or needing to receive an expression of our love.
Fellowship and sharing are part of our church family life. Each Sunday after worship the congregation and visitors are invited to the Parish Hall for fellowship and a light lunch. Coffee Hour teams consisting of church members provide favorite foods and snacks on a rotational schedule.
