A Word From Pastor Dan

We’re so glad you’re here.

St. Thomas is an Evangelical, Christ-centered, Bible teaching, loving family place to call home in Bernville, Pennsylvania.  A bit traditional, a bit contemporary, but always seeking to be a relevant witness of Jesus Christ to the culture around us.  We’d love to invite you to come, connect, and grow with us, starting with worship this Sunday. Our contemporary worship service begins at 8:00am, our blended service begins at 9:30am and our traditional service begins at 11:00am. Childcare is not provided during this COVID-19 time but the nursery is available to parents who wish to use it for their child while supervising them.

Our Services


Statement for  Re-opening Church According to Our Governor  Due to COVID-19


 

Dear Church Family,

 

St. Thomas will resume services on June 14, 2020.  Please note our service times have changed.


8-9am- Contemporary Worship

9:30-10:30am – Blended Worship (praise choruses and hymns)

11-Noon – Traditional Worship

 

When arriving at St. Thomas, if possible, please use the main street or 183 parking spaces. Please enter the building through the Main Entrance doors or through Beatrice Hall doors. The library, office, education, and chapel doors will be locked. If you need to be close to an entrance door for health reasons, please use the handicap spaces along Washington and close to the Main Entrance. 


Midweek service (Wednesday) will resume on June 17, 2020 at 7:00pm. This service will meet in the sanctuary and will be a continuation of Pastor Dan's Sunday school series on Revelation.  Note:  You need not to have been involved in the class prior; all are welcome. 


There will be no Sunday School or Children's Ministries offered at this time. 


Masks are strongly suggest but not mandatory.  If you have health issues that require you to not wear a mask, still fill free to attend. 


If you feel uneasy about attending, we understand and wish you good health as we transition. We look forward to seeing you, hopefully, in the near future. 

 

The Elders of St. Thomas Church





8:00am - Contemporary | 9:30am - Blended

  11:00am- Traditional

 

When you visit on a Sunday morning, you have a choice of three services: 8:00am, 9:30 am and 11:00am.  We hope that any of these services make you feel comfortable and help you worship the Lord and learn from his Word; however, if you prefer a certain style, there are a few differences between them. 

 

Our 8:00am service includes contemporary music with a keyboard, guitar, violin, tambourine and drums.  The 9:30am blended is just that - a blend of both contemporary music and traditional hymns while the 11:00am service is traditional hymns.  The sermon is the same at all services.

 


Wednesday Night Prayer and Bible Study - 7:00pm


Our Wednesday night service meets in the Sanctuary and consists of singing some old hymns and a short time of prayer followed by a more in-depth Bible study.
