Local W.Va. churches, funeral homes take pandemic precautions

From West Virginia-

Rev. Chad Slater, pastor of the Christ Episcopal Church in Bluefield, says their church will also not me opening its doors for services today.

“We are still not open for public worship and we probably won’t be for a few Sundays,” he said. “We want to make sure when we are able to come back that its a safe venue for those that feel that they can venture out.”

The 100-year-old church closed in March like other churches in response to the pandemic for the health and benefit of their members and the community.

On Easter Sunday, the church did hold a drive-in service for members.

“People could drive by and wave and receive a blessing at the church,” Slater said. “We just tried to make the best out of an unusual Easter.”

Along with the Easter drive-in service, the church has held worship services and Bible studies online.
