Mother's Day Parking Lot Church Service

Title

Mother's Day Parking Lot Church Service

Description

These images show how church services have changed during this pandemic. The Pastor stands in the doorway of St Paul’s Lutheran Church in Knox, PA and speaks into a microphone which we listened to over the car's radio. But the feedback was really broken up, so we rolled down the car windows to listen to the service. The girl holds a sign that says "Please STAY IN your CAR." It was nice to hear the sermon, but it was a weird experience. I look forward to being able to be inside a church again. There are plans to get back to "normal services" but that entails leaving every other pew empty, limiting only one family group per pew, members over 60 are encouraged to stay home, and there will be no singing as that may spread the virus.
