MADISONVILLE and HENDERSON, Ky. (WEHT) For the first time in almost two months, several congregations in Kentucky were able to hold in-person meetings in the form of drive-in services.
People were asked to remain in their cars and leave a parking spot between vehicles to continue to practice social distancing.
In Madisonville at Grace Warehouse Church, older members of the congregation were advised not to attend to insure their health and safety.
Pastor Gary Bennett has remained in touch with the older members of his congregation through phone calls and will advise them to attend once the CDC regulations deem it safe enough for elderly to attend public events.
At First Assembly of God Church in Henderson, attendees didn’t even have to roll down their windows to hear the sermon as the service was transmitted over the radio.
Pastor Jeff Ferguson is looking forward to being able to host services inside First Assembly of God again soon and is confident his church will provide the proper supplies to keep members of the congregation safe.
Governor Andy Beshear is hopeful that limited capacity in-person services can be held at places of worship beginning May 20.
