After a much-needed respite in July, the search committee is recharged and ready for all that needs to be done to call a new rector for our Parish. We have recently started interview training and will soon receive candidate names from the Diocese. We have much to prepare and plan for as we begin this next phase in our search process. It is our hope to have the candidate interviews and visits completed by mid to late November. We ask for your continued prayers for the candidates, the vestry and the search committee as we all move forward together to find a new leader for St. Thomas’s Parish.

In January 2018, the process of finding a new rector for St. Thomas’s began with the formation of our search committee. We have been successfully working with our vestry, congregation, diocese and outside consultants to reach our goal in calling a new rector.

We have recently completed the self-study phase of our search process. During this time, our congregation completed an online survey, which has revealed a clear picture of who we are and where we want to be in the future.

We are excited to announce that our parish profile has been completed and is ready to be viewed by using the link below. The goal of this profile is to help you gain an understanding of life at St. Thomas’s Parish, our community and who we need to lead us forward in our faith journey together.

As we advance in our search process, we will continue to update this page with more information.

Our time together as a committee always begins with our St. Thomas rector search prayer. We ask that you join us in prayer for this committee and our St. Thomas family:

Our Heavenly Creator, who has blessed this dedicated church family for 175 years serving our community in your faith and love. We ask for guidance for our Parish, Search Committee and Vestry as we embark on the journey to mutual ministry with our next Rector. Bless us with your grace and fill us with knowledge and fortitude throughout the process. In the Holy Name of Jesus Christ, our Savior, and of the Holy Spirit, AMEN.
