March 23 Update – City of Dallas Public Health Request

200316 Cod Public Health Request
March 22, 2020 Update:

In accordance with directives and requests of applicable state and local authorities, in-person Sunday services, Sunday School, and Wednesday meetings will be put on hold until further notice.   Arrangements have been made for audio access for anyone who wishes to attend Sunday services and Wednesday meetings remotely.  These are complete services and meetings, including readings, music, hymns, solos on Sundays, and testimonies on Wednesdays.

  • The music begins at 10:25 am for Sunday Services and at 7:25 pm for the Wednesday evening meetings.
  • To join the services and meetings from your computer, tablet or smartphone, go to https://us04web.zoom.us/j/102531109, Meeting ID: 102 531 109. You may also dial in using your phone.  Call +1 346 248 7799, enter the Meeting ID 102 531 109, and follow the prompts.  If you are using a landline, please note this is not a toll-free call.
  • When you call or log in, please remember to mute the sound on your device and keep it muted unless you wish to give a testimony on Wednesday.  If you have a video camera on your device, you should also turn it off or cover it.
  • For privacy reasons, we request that no recordings be made of the Sunday services and Wednesday meetings.
    • If you wish to receive weekly emails with the Sunday Bulletin (containing hymn numbers and words to the solo) and with the Wednesday evening meeting topics, hymn numbers, and readings, please contact the Clerk (Linda Miller) at 214-526-7783 (messages only) or clerk@thirdchurchdallas.org.
    • Hymnals will be available to borrow from the Reading Room.  You can make arrangements with the Reading Room Librarian.
    • Sunday collection will still be accepted via mail and online through Paypal.
    • No in-person Sunday School will be held, but teachers will be in touch with their Sunday School classes.

The Reading Room will be closed to the public, but small group meetings will continue via electronic means.  The Reading Room Librarian and assistant librarians will continue to be available to answer inquiries and make arrangements for purchases or loans of Reading Room materials.  You may contact the Reading Room at 214-352-5250 or by email to readingroom@thirdchurchdallas.org.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out and ask.  You may contact the Clerk (Linda Miller) at 214-526-7783 (messages only) or clerk@thirdchurchdallas.org. We will do our best to answer your questions.

Thank you in advance for your patience as we work through these new arrangements.  While circumstances are changing rapidly, and things may seem to be unsettled at the moment, we can all take comfort in the fact that “Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need.”  Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 494.

Finally, and most importantly, no one should feel isolated from their church family or go without their needs being met during this time.  If you have a need, or know someone in our church family who does, please be in touch with the Clerk and we will do everything we can to provide assistance.

“Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.” Ps. 91:9–11

Lovingly,
