Sixty years ago a group of families started our beloved St. Thomas’ as a small mission church that met weekly in a shopping center. This small group had a grand dream to form a church whose primary mission would one day be a school.Sixty years later that vision is now a very personal reality for all of the families who have attended the church and school. To honor the dream of those families and to celebrate the church’s 60th Anniversary we invite you to attend a weekend celebration, April 26th and 27th. The weekend will include a party on the evening of Saturday, April 26th and the Annual Family Church Picnic on Sunday, April 27th. The party, Denim and Diamonds – 60 Years at St. Thomas’ will take place on our beautiful church grounds and will include live entertainment, food stations, dancing, a wine pull and a parties’ auction. We hope you will all join us, in your favorite western wear, for a casual evening under the stars! To make Denim & Diamonds a success, we need your help. Enclosed you will find many opportunities to support this event. Proceeds from ticket sales and sponsorships will go to the St. Thomas’ Episcopal School’s scholarship fund. This is a community-building event that will join church families past and present, current school parents, grandparents, alumni, faculty, and friends in support of a common cause. Thank you in advance for supporting Denim and Diamonds. Table underwriting RSVPs are due by April 15th and are available now. Individual ticket sales are on sale as well. In the event that we reach maximum capacity, guests will be added to a wait list in the order RSVPs are received.
