St Thomas Lutheran Church
Who We Are
Loving God and others, Growing in faith. Serving the community.
When you arrive, you will be warmly greeted. Be yourself. You’ll find folks dressed in everything from suits and dresses to sneakers and jeans. Come in something that makes you feel relaxed and comfortable. God doesn't mind, so why should we?
We enjoy the sounds of children and encourage parents of young children to bring them to worship. We have activity bags (filled with crayons, stickers, books, etc) for children to use during the service.
We use a mixture of traditional and modern language. The traditional features of our worship bring us the best from God’s Church throughout the ages, while the contemporary features remind us that God’s promises of forgiveness, guidance and peace still apply to our daily lives.

Lee was born in Winchester, Virginia. His family moved five times between the ages of 4 and 11, before settling in Martinsburg, West Virginia. It was there that God planted seeds for a call to ordained ministry. As an active member of St. John Lutheran, he took part in numerous youth activities and retreats; sang in several choirs; and served on various committees and the church council. This was a very important time in his spiritual development and growth. He has a love for all kinds of music. During junior high and high school, he was active in the concert, jazz, and marching bands. He also marched with "The Cadets" Drum and Bugle Corps. He attended Shepherd University in Shepherdstown, West Virginia, where he received an Associate of Arts degree in general studies and a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in accounting. After graduation, he worked in public accounting and passed the CPA examination. He received a Master of Divinity degree from the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg. He served parishes in Virginia for 13 years before coming to this congregation in August 2010.
