St. Thomas More Church was built in 1980. The church is fairly large and can comfortably seat 500 people. Each side of the church is flanked by five long, beautiful stained glass windows depicting details from the life of our Patron, Saint Thomas More. The sanctuary was designed by Chris and Kristie Hollier and painted by artist Keith Estilette. Numerous contemporary statues adorn the sanctuary and vestibule.
A major renovation was completed in 2016 which included a large, commissioned mural painted by artist, Brian Theriot on the ceiling above the altar and sanctuary, new pews and lighting, new tile flooring with an inlaid mosaic depicting our patron, Saint Thomas More, a new altar with custom inlaid mosaics, and a newly-painted ceiling depicting the night sky - adorned with a multitude of stars on a deep blue background. A spacious Nursery is available for parents with young children to enjoy Mass in comfort.
