Ministries

St. Thomas' Episcopal Church is actively engaged in expanding God's Kingdom on earth. These are our ministries:

Christian Community Ministry
CCM accepts food and clothing. Bring your offering of nonperishable food items and place them in the basket in the narthex at St. Thomas'. These gifts are blessed the fourth Sunday of the month and taken to CCM.

Early Childhood Support Services
The St. Clare Chapter of the Daughters of the King collect diapers for ECSS of Ouachita Parish, a program providing assistance to young families. Purchase a package of diapers and place them in the tall basket in the narthex at St. Thomas'. Once a month a Daughter delivers them to ECSS.

Recycling
Bring your bagged aluminum foil and cans to St. Thomas' and place them near the storage building to the right of the church entrance.

Refuge of Hope
This is a ministry to the homeless and hungry of Monroe. It is a shelter located on Desiard St. near downtown that provides meals, showers, a place to wash clothes and other resources. St. Thomas' provides and prepares the noon meal the 5th Wednesdays of the month and makes other contributions as needed and we are able.

If you would like to get involved in any of these ministries, or have an idea of another we should start, speak to Mthr Dawnell, Deacon Bette or any vestry member--or any member of St. Thomas'!
