US Church Holds Drive-In Service in Response to Coronavirus

Wednesday, April 1st, 2020

A congregation in the US has decided to host drive-in church services as a way of gathering people together for worship while being wary of spreading the COVID-19 virus.

Genoa Church in Westerville, Ohio held two drive-in church worship services last month with about 600 people in 300 cars attending.

The Christian Post reports, the church had a raised platform for speakers, with attendees remaining in their parked cars to listen to the music and preaching through FM transmission.

Genoa Church Pastor Frank Carl says it’s the first time his congregation had held such a service, having been inspired by the famed Crystal Cathedral of California offering a similar worship experience years earlier.

The services followed a similar order to their usual church service with worship music and a sermon.

Attendees honked their horns instead of saying “Amen” and offering buckets were at the exit if people wanted to contribute.
