In seek of normalcy

Star Staff Report

For weeks it has been church by video for many congregations in the community as social distancing guidelines established by state and federal authorities took a dim view of large gatherings. But as things loosen a bit, churches, in this case First Baptist Church of Port St. Joe, are taking small steps back to times before COVID-19. The church, with social distancing in place, held its first live in-person service this past Sunday and followed it up with a drive-up service, postponed from Friday, Monday evening on the church grounds. Some folks just drove up, some brought out a chair and some just stood. Several people along U.S. 98 slowed to listen. {Courtesy of Deborah Croft}
