EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT)-Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear recommended that people consider not going to church this Sunday to help stop the spread of the coronavirus.
Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb recommended limiting events to 250 people or less.
Some churches in Evansville including first Presbyterian Church will have services this Sunday -but with preventative measures in place.
Others like Crossroads Christian church and Bethel church confirmed they will not be having services.
But the lead pastor at Crossroads says this won’t stop them from getting the word out.
“We definitely have had to limit our programming. We’re trying to be responsive to the governor’s direction and also just the community’s request to not gather people. “Our plans this weekend is to offer worship experiences online to our church community as well as anybody who is looking for a way to worship.”
The Evansville Diocese tells us their masses will be held as scheduled.
In Kentucky, we learned the First Baptist Church in Owensboro has canceled its services for the next two Sundays.
