Domestic Violence Resources
Abuse is about power and control. When survivors are forced to stay in the home or in close proximity to their abuser more frequently, an abuser can use any tool to exert control over their victim, including a national health concern such as COVID-19. In a time where companies may be encouraging that their employees work remotely, and the CDC is encouraging “social distancing,” an abuser may take advantage of an already stressful situation to gain more control. We are here to provide you information for you, your family, neighbors, co-workers, and friends. The following link provides right now Domestic Violence Resources for your right now situation provided through Texas Health Resources.
Live Video Streaming Issues
First Saint John Family, it is or hope and prayer that all is well with you and your loved ones. Because churches are unable to congregate they have to rely on streaming their services. As a result you may possibly experience lagging or freezing of our broadcast. We wanted to let you know that this is due to servers being pushed to their max capabilities or in other words it’s due to everyone getting online trying to watch their service. The media ministry has discussed this and there is nothing that we can do about it. We suggest that if you are having issues watching our services live, to wait until the broadcast is over, then watch the archived or saved version. Also, we wanted to add that you can pay your tithes and offerings online via our Givelify app. Please call the church office if you have any questions in trying to set it up. Continue to trust in God and stay safe, we’re going to make it through!
