Coronavirus Pandemic to Impact Easter Church Services for Second Year

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit the U.S in March of 2020, most church services came to a halt.

Folks turned to online services or used parking lots to still be included in worship.

Now, a year later in the pandemic, holding in-person Easter services is a growing concern.

Let the church say Amen, it’s the message Dr. Stanley K. McCrary of Friendship Missionary Baptist Church preaches to his congregation.

However, most of his audience is outside.

”We still continue our parking lot services for members who can leave their home but they may have a little slight temp or not 100% sure to come inside the sanctuary. It has caused churches to move out of their comfort zones, to really go out into the community,” said Pastor McCrary.

Pews were once filled, but due to coronavirus, several church members park outside and listen to the service through this speaker, like Bertha Baker.

”People are scared to go back in and mingle and stuff. The speaker is good though, they should have it even when people go back to the church,” said Baker.
