Holy Eucharist Rite I

All are welcome. St. Thomas’s is a diverse community of young and old, different races, languages, and nationalities, cradle Episcopalians and those new to our tradition. We are conservative and liberal, single and married and partnered, socially active, spiritually reflective, deeply committed to being the Gospel in our community, our diocese, and our world. Our parish strives to be a safe and inclusive community of worship that welcomes everyone as a child of God, and values everyone’s ministry in the Church and the world.

Our mission statement: Nourished at Christ’s table and stepping forward in faith, we are instruments of God’s love, serving our parish family, the University of Delaware, our community, and God’s creation.

Summer Children’s Worship: God’s Big Backyard

Summer Children’s Worship for children 3 years and older will begin on June 9 and run through August 18 during the 10:30 a.m. service. Children will meet the children’s worship leader in the Great Hall before the service and then walk downstairs or outside together, depending on the activity planned, at 10:30 a.m. The children will then rejoin their families during the Peace. Our theme this year is “God’s Big Backyard”: Where Kids Have a Blast Serving Jesus. Each week, in our very own “Big Backyard”, the children will hear a story or do an activity (art, drama, music, games, etc.) based on one of the many bible stories that illustrate how we can serve our families, our friends, our neighbors, our communities, and God. This year, we will be asking for parents or other parishioners to be guest leaders. Keep an eye out for your chance to lead!

Scottish Country Dancers

Meets in the Great Hall. Scottish Country Dancing is a wonderful pastime and is great exercise for mind and body. Although originating in Scotland, you will find clubs and classes in most countries around the globe. Scottish Country Dancing is very much a social activity and, unlike many other types of dancing, dancers are encouraged to dance with different people, so that couples who do come along, will dance mostly with other dancers and it is therefore most definitely not a requirement to come to a class with a partner. We are a friendly group of dancers and give a warm welcome to new members!
