First Baptist Joplin Covid-19 Plan

I trust you are doing well and being strengthened in your faith during this time.  You are being bombarded with messages and info by many different sources so I want to keep this brief.

We have been preparing for the time when we felt it wise to close the office and work remotely and I believe that time has arrived for us.  Until further notice, the office will officially be closed after 4:30 today(March 26).  We still have responsibilities throughout the week and, therefore, ministry staff and support staff will still be in the building throughout the week as needed but do not depend on someone being at the church if you just drop in.  Please call or email.
All church phone calls will still be answered by a staff member and emails will still be checked and returned in a timely manner.  I want to repeat: You will still be able to get in touch with a staff member by calling the church phone number 624-4585 and we will still be checking emails.

Thank you for your understanding in this and continue to keep walking with Jesus through this.  He's doing things that we can't see or understand.  "Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ." (1 Peter 1:13)

Please let us know if there are any ways we can better serve you during this season.
