Bristol Church hosts Easter car services – NBC Connecticut

As the number of COVID-19 cases continues to increase, churches across the state have had to look for other ways to follow social distancing during one of the holiest days of the year.

Liberty Baptist Church hosted Easter Sunday in a slightly different way. This year, the church has decided to host Easter car services for the congregation.

The members introduced themselves and parked in the church parking lot and listened to hymns, prayers and sermons with the help of the car radio.

Inspiration came after pastor Dustin Alley noted another church that hosted a similar program where members practiced social estrangement while receiving spiritual guidance.

“I spoke to our leadership team about hosting a similar service with our congregation,” said Pastor Alley. “We listened and coordinated together and decided to host the drive-thru service.”

Cathy Cawood is a long-term member of the Liberty Baptist Church. Cawood says it was the first time she had a service in her car and she is happy that church leaders are prioritizing member health.

“They care so much about us that they are ready to do it to allow us to stay connected again,” said Cawood.

Although they are not physically together, many members are happy to hear the message and see friends from a distance.

“It gives us the ability to have a sense of family and that’s what the church is all about,” said Cawood.

The church has collected donations for doctors and nurses who are on the front lines and work to save lives.
