FEBRUARY  2017                                          St. Thomas United Methodist Church   FROM THE PASTOR: Greetings to all families of St. Thomas, I always think February is the month of LOVE; maybe it is because of Valentine’s Day.  You know most every country has a Valentine’s Day.  I remember while back in Korea when I was in middle school, I did give chocolates to a girl that I liked on a Valentine’s Day.

NOVEMBER 2016                                St. Thomas United Methodist Church   A NOTE FROM THE PASTOR:  Greetings to all Christian families,   “Are you so quickly persuading me to become a Christian?” — Acts 26:28 Have you ever heard the terms “almost Christian” and “altogether Christian”? Do you ever think about and question yourself, “Am I really a Christian”? If you said you had never thought about that question then it might be a time to think about it.
