St. Thomas' COVID-19 Response

Dear Members and Friends of St. Thomas',

St. Thomas' will continue practicing social distancing as recommended by the CDC to help stem the tide of COVID-19. We are now closed for in-person worship and gatherings until further notice. While we all do our part to “Flatten the Curve” of COVID-19 and our “in person” time together may be temporarily suspended, we want you to know that St. Thomas is still alive and well as a church community! There are many ways to stay engaged with the church and to keep your financial commitment to St. Thomas'.

As able, please continue to pay your pledge and offer to God that which has been gifted.  Financial gifts to the church enable St. Thomas' to continue offering our services and ministries to God and the community in this unique time. 

 

We are living in a time of uncertainty and stress, and it is perfectly natural for us to feel the anxiety that we all feel. But we are also finding ways to be the community of love and support that we are called to be. Pray for each other, reach out if you need help; call us. Know that your church staff is praying for you on a daily basis; pray for us as well. Join us in the offerings we have, such as the Lenten discussions and YouTube videos. We are with you, and God is with us all. May God's peace be with you. 

Since 1907 St. Thomas' has been a home for worship, service, and fellowship in Richmond. We are a place of simple hospitality, and seek to share our communal life with our church, our community, and those in need.

Everyone is welcome.
