HENDERSON, Ky. (WEHT) – Churches in Kentucky were given the green light to being hosting in person services based on a judge’s decision, though Governor Andy Beshear has expressed disapproval.
River of Life Church in Henderson was one of the churches in the Commonwealth who chose to hold service with people inside. The first such service in more than two months.
Only a portion of the the congregation attended the service as the church continued to stream it online for those at home.
Pastor Shane Amar described Sunday as a test run to make sure people are kept safe in the upcoming weeks.
“We had our leaders come in so mostly the people who serve as our ushers, people who serve on the worship team, people that actually make the church operate. So we just opened it up for our leaders to get a test run today.”
Church officials also provided hand sanitizer and wiped down door handles.
