Hello, and Welcome to our St. Thomas Home Page!
On behalf of all of the wonderful Christians who are part of our faith community, thank you so much for visiting our Internet home! We encourage you to visit the various areas of the site to learn more about what we have to offer.
At St. Thomas, we do our utmost to provide gracious hospitality to all we encounter, both within the doors of our lovely church and outside in the world at large. Our aim at St. Thomas is stated clearly in our Vision Statement, and we urge you to click on the appropriate link here to learn what we strive to be about.
Our charming parish church has been serving Berea and the Southwest portion of Cuyahoga County, Ohio (the Cleveland area) since 1893 in this location, and for many years before that in others. We are nestled in the midst of the beautiful Baldwin-Wallace college campus and just one block from the quaint downtown historic district of Berea.
We cordially invite you to come and worship with us next time you are in the area! We very much look forward to personally greeting you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, and introducing you to our active and growing community of believers at St. Thomas Episcopal Church!
Yours in Christ,
St. Thomas Episcopal Church

BLANKET PROJECT – Now through December 6, we are collecting blankets for the needy. These blankets are in addition to our Christmas Duffle Bag Project, as they are very much needed during the cold winter months. New or excellent condition blankets can be put in the marked donation box near the entry way of the church. Twin size blankets are especially needed. Thank you for helping those in need. If you have any questions, please contact Barb Emigh.
THE CHRISTMAS PROJECT – St. Thomas is again participating in a special Christmas project sponsored by the Episcopal West Side Shared Ministry. As a gift to the homeless and impoverished, we have been asked to donate 40 men’s and 40 women’s filled duffle bags/back packs. Please label your gift as “Man” or “Lady”. Individual items will also be accepted which will be used to make additional filled bags. These gifts will be presented as part of a Christmas dinner gathering and later distributed to other people throughout the area.Contributions should be turned in as soon as possible, but by no later than Sunday, December 6, and should be innew or excellent condition. A list of items is posted on the office window along with extra sheets, please feel free to take one. If you have any questions,please feel free to contact Barb Emigh at 440-465-7720.
COAT INGATHERING –We are also collecting new or gently worn coats (clean and in good repair – no holes or ripped linings) to donate to St. Luke’s West Side Shared Ministries along with the blankets and duffle bags. Please bring your donation in by December 6 and hang it beneath the sign on the coat rack in the hallway.
