HOPEwhitemarsh encompasses not only the grounds of St. Thomas’ Church, but the sense of history and memories that have been made here. It all started in 1698 when 1 acre of land was donated by Edward Farmer for a log church to be built. The log cabin was replaced by the current church, which was consecrated in 1881. The campus invites you to meditate, gather, and make memories with friends and families.
