New Contemporary Service at St. Thomas Episcopal

St. Thomas

St. Thomas Episcopal Church is introducing their new contemporary church service to San Antonio. Located at the Southwest corner of 281 and 1604, the church currently has traditional Sunday 8:00 am and 10:30 am Episcopal services. The new contemporary service will take place at 9:15 am on Sundays in Parish Hall.

 

The service will celebrate with modern music and a traditional gospel message. “This will be a comfortable hour with contemporary praise music, along with a traditional Episcopal service including a lesson, sermon and communion,” Rector Chuck Woehler said. “All are welcome to partake.

 

The contemporary service targets people who don’t currently belong to a church, people who are uncomfortable with more formal services or anyone just looking to try something new. Even children are welcome at the contemporary service.

 

Woehler said that a lot of people associate Episcopal churches with formal, inflexible worship styles, but St. Thomas is proving that’s not always the case. “The goal of St. Thomas is to be a place where people can search for a meaningful relationship with God in an open setting,” he said. “We are very strong in that and we have a wonderful community that loves and cares for each other.”

 

There are several other events and ministries to be involved in at St. Thomas. Habitat for Humanity is a great way to help the community. The church also hosts a popular youth group for both middle school and high school students. There is Ladies Night Out, a monthly gathering of women at local restaurants for fellowship and fun. Also, Men’s Meat Burning, a social gathering of church men where each person brings their own “meat” to cook at the home of the host for the month. Both groups meet on the third Thursday of each month.
