Men's Corps: The Men's Corps is a group of men who organize for the purposes of fellowship and service. The big event of the year for St. Thomas Men's Corps is Oystoberfest. The Men's Corps has been the central organization behind this fun event for over 10 years. Last year we raised over $25,000 for St. Thomas ministries!  We organize everything from the oysters, to the music stage, to the kids zone, to the volunteers that help put it on. So come on out for fun, fellowship, and helping out your neighbor! The St. Thomas Men's Corps needs YOU!!! Contact Dan Hicks, Robert Wyant, or Larry Meier for more info.

Women of St. Thomas:  The Women of St. Thomas  join together in fellowship for speakers, social events, and projects to raise funds for our Anne Woodrum Board Scholarships.  These scholarships are given to high school seniors who have contributed to the life of St. Thomas over the years.  We have had a variety of fundraiser events such as a silent auction, December Wreath making, selling St. Thomas Christmas ornaments, and selling Eliza Askin prints of St. Thomas.  All women are welcome to attend any and all events, and suggestions for speakers and events are encouraged.
