ST. THOMAS MOVES TOWARD BECOMING A MORE BIBLE-CENTERED CHURCH
When was the last time that you read your Bible at home? To encourage more Bible use and familiarity, beginning in January, 2008, members are encouraged to bring their Bibles to worship each Sunday. During worship, members will be requested to use their Bibles, rather than the bulletin insert. To encourage use of the Bible at home and during the week, each Sunday, listed in the bulletin will be the lessons for the upcoming Sunday. During each week, it is hoped that members will prayerfully reflect upon the next Sunday's lessons. Consider giving a person a Bible for a Christmas gift this year.
