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.

For use of Youtube:

If you have a YouTube account, they are free to create, you can “subscribe” to TBC’s channel by using the following steps. 

If you have a smart TV or firestick and use the YouTube app, it may be more enjoyable to watch on a larger screen.

Subscribe to a channel

  1. Open the YouTube app or go to m.youtube.com.
  2. Sign in to YouTube.
  3. If you’re on the Home tab : Below the video whose channel you want to subscribe to, tap the channel icon. Tap Subscribe .

Signing into YouTube allows you to leave comments, much like one can while on Facebook.

Please feel free to share these links on your personal pages and interact during or after the fact. It is one small but important way we can stay connected and in communication while not physically present together.

We are thankful for you and your wonderful participation and hope this helps you continue to be able to do so as we continue working to bring a faithful, quality, and connected service in our absence from one another.
