Welcome to our website. St. Thomas Episcopal Church is located in Dallas about 20 minutes west of Salem, the state capitol, and less than an hour from the Pacific Ocean. It is a neighborhood church located on the southern side of the bustling community. Dallas, the Polk County seat, has a renovated historic district with many interesting shops and eateries and lovely, well-maintained parks with one of the finest aquatic centers anywhere. One does not have to travel far for fine wine tasting or bird watching. Located near the Coast Range, Dallas is surrounded by rolling foothills covered with farms, orchards, vineyards and forests.
St. Thomas Episcopal Church welcomes all persons, wherever you are in your spiritual journey. Whether male or female, young or old, lesbian, bi-sexual, straight, gay, or transgender you are welcome here. Whether you are homeless or housed, rich or poor, married or single you are welcome here. Whatever your physical or mental abilities or limitations, the color of your skin or your cultural heritage, you are welcome here. God resides in you because you are beautifully and wonderfully made. You are welcome here because Christ welcomes you, and so do we.
St. Thomas is a caring church community open to all to grow in faith, love and service to others. We are a community who welcomes everybody, where all the doors are open, the table is always set and no one goes away hungry.
