As a part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, we are connected to more than 7,000 congregations across the country and more than 60 million Lutherans around the world. Our connections enhance who we are. The ELCA is organized as interconnected “expressions” of the church, not as a hierarchy. Congregations, conferences, synods, and the national church are all faithful expressions of the church grounded in the teachings of Holy Scripture. Each expression makes its own decisions, performs those aspects of mission and ministry for which they are specially situated, and works together fully respectful of the sanctity of Christian conscience in each type of church expression.
The Congregation Council serves as the policy-making group for St. Thomas and is made up of ten to twelve members who serve rotating three-year terms. Meetings of the full membership are held twice a year to elect lay leaders, approve the budget, and reflect together on mission, program, and property priorities.
Other committees of the congregation include:
Youth Support Committee
Mutual Ministry Committee
Mission Endowment Fund Committee
Early Childhood Ministry
