Third’s Response to Coronavirus
Third’s Response to Coronavirus
As the local and global community come together to address the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, Third Baptist Church is seeking to promote health across the community. In moments like these, we do not partner with fear, but choose to lean into faith and hope, as well as practicing wisdom and safety. We are actively encouraging health practices and precautions to our whole community. We believe that wisdom, modern medicine, and faith are meant to work together, and express the value for each in the pursuit of on-going health and healing. We continue to remain in close communication with St. Louis City and County public health to be aware of their recommendations for St. Louis City and County.
We are so pleased to have had such committed and robust participation for our online services!
As we anticipate that this will continue to be our reality, listed below are some hints and suggestions to help navigate online services. If you have your own tips or suggestions, please pass them our way as we all know working with technology means we are aiming at a constantly changing target.
