"Since, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on earthly things."
Colossians 3:1-2

Pastor Eric Van Scyoc

Dear Friend,

John, a follower of Jesus Christ, wrote "For god so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever beleives in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16

I am delighted that you have visited us in cyberspace. Please spend some time in this website to learn more about our school.

St. Thomas Lutheran Ministries is made up of forgiven Christians who believe that Jesus Christ has truly died for the sins of the world, is resurrected and lives today in a very active way in the hearts and lives of His people.

Parents are the strongest teachers. Our purpose is to help you with the Christian nurture of your student as she/he is prepared to become an active citizen. Families from any denomination who get the most of our school are active in their own congregational ministry.

I would be happy to assist you in finding a home congregation that matches your belief and practice. That congregation does not have to be St. Thomas. I am more concerned that you find a place where you and your family can grow in the Lord.

St. Thomas is a part of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. Please visit one of our Bible Studies and Worship:

Sunday worship at 8:15 AM is traditional.
10:45 AM worship is blended.
Sunday morning Bible Study is at 9:30 AM
There are additional bible Studies during the week throughout the year. Call the church office for more details.

I encourage you to contact the school office today. No matter what time of year it is, there will be someone with whom you can set up an appointment to visit.

Your Servant in Christ,
Pastor Eric Van Scyoc, BSEd, MDiv
