About St. Thomas Covenant Church
Our mission is to reframe timeless Christian truths & practices in a language and style that makes sense today; and to wrestle honestly with how those truths & practices impact our lives now.
We try to engage with those who have been let down by the Church and invite them home; to develop healthy followers of Jesus; and to transform our neighborhoods into loving, safe, and welcoming communities.
We value authenticity, wrestling with God, loving our neighbor, creativity in worship, growing in faith, and remaining rooted to the historic mission of Jesus
We are a welcoming and intentionally inclusive community made up of so many incredible people. We are young. We are old. We are wealthy. We are not so wealthy. We are educated. We aren't. We are white. We are BIPOC. We are cisgendered. We are LGBTQIA+, We are married. We are single. We like tea and coffee, beer and wine, juice and milk. We are thinkers, feelers, artists, musicians, teachers, learners, and so much more. We come together often to talk about life, faith, fear, doubt and how they all intersect. Together we do our best to follow Jesus with our whole lives (though we fail often) and together we do our best to be Jesus' body in Salem and in the world. Along with being congregationally led, with decisions made by our leadership team and our community,
