Pastoral Care Team
Committee: Jean, Judy, Jim, Cathe, Stephen, Kathie (not pictured)
"Pastoral care is an ancient model of emotional and spiritual support that can be found in all cultures and traditions. It has been described in our modern context as individual and corporate patience in which trained pastoral carers support people in their pain, loss and anxiety, and their triumphs, joys and victories." (University of Canberra)
St. Thomas is blessed to have such a wonderful, caring team who are full of love, dedication, and support for their fellow man.

Food for the Multitude
Committee: Bryon, Jim, Jan, Sandra
Food for the Multitude is a collaborative effort among local churches to provide nourishing, hot meals for people in need in the Elizabethton/Carter County area.
As many as 300 meals (and sometimes more!) are prepared and served for take-out every Saturday by volunteers.
TLC Women's Center is located at 145 Don Lewis Road - about a half mile up Stoney Creek Road (Hwy 91), behind the Northeast State & TN Workforce Campus.
***Don't throw away your Weekly Bulletins!! We are spreading the Word of God to those we serve. The inserts to our Sunday Bulletins containing the readings, prayers and Gospel are now handed out with each meal in hopes of giving those in need not just food for the body but food for the soul.
