PARISH NEWS

Looking for Volunteers
Saint Thomas’ parishioners have the opportunity to once again join the Bracebridge BIA and be part of Summer Midnight Madness on the Evening of AUGUST 3rd. In previous years we have supervised activity at the bouncy castles in Memorial Park. Please see the signup sheets on the bulletin board. Pick the two hour time slot of your choice. The church receives $700.00 for our time. Thank you.

Old Tyme Gospel Band
Save the date!! We will be hosting the Old Tyme Gospel Band here at St. Thomas on June 23rd from 7-9pm. This will be a Free Will Offering event.

Celtic Christianity
Join Rev. Judie Cooper on Saturday, June 9th here at St. Thomas' for a workshop called "With the Eye of an Eagle" (9am to noon). The morning will include a structured outdoor walk (can also be done inside if need be) and will end with a simple lunch of soup and bread. Just bring a smile and some comfy shoes! Please register by June 7th at the church office (645-3486).

Parish Council

BBQ meat (and vegetarian option) will be provided. This will be our last Parish Council meeting until September.

Notice of Summer Vestry Meeting
To be held Sunday, June 24th at noon. We need to pass the budget for the second six months of the year (as discussed at the January meeting).

Mark Your Calendars!
Beginning Sunday, April 8th, Rev. Kelly will lead a course called “Christian Foundations.” It will begin at 7pm (following a brief service of evening prayer at 6:30pm) and will run for 12 weeks. This is open to the community at large, so come and bring a friend. Participants are invited to pay $30.00 to cover the amount of course materials however please feel free to come regardless of the cost. Come for coffee, dessert, and a very worthwhile introduction to the foundations of Christian faith.

Fundscrip
You only have to donate the time it takes to buy the cards!! We all eat, we all buy groceries, we all have birthday, and we all buy gas. So why not buy your groceries with pre-paid cards for YIGS or Food Basics? You can get them right here at the church on Sunday mornings after the service or in the office during the week. This is one way that we can all contribute to fundraising here at St. Thomas’!

We now have Tim Horton’s cards in denominations of $15 or $25 dollars! Please see Tracy during office hours or Catherine Thompson and Mary Mitchell after Sunday service in Browning Hall. Doing a big spring home renovation? We have Home Depot cards too!

Newcomers
If you are a newcomer to St. Thomas. WELCOME!! Please join us for fellowship after the 10:30am service in Browning Hall. If you wish to give your address, email address and phone number so that we can add you to our Parish List, please place this on the offering plate or give it to Rev. Kelly. Thank you.
