Holy week is in full swing for Christians, but things look different due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
Drive-in church services have taken off during the pandemic and Pentecostal Church of God in Davenport joined in on that movement Sunday.
Mark Anderson, the pastor of the church, tells KWQC that he worked with city officials to make sure the service was allowed and then got the go-ahead. Members who wanted to attend the service sat in their car with windows rolled up. Parishioners could listen to the service on their phone via live stream.
Anderson says members of the church asked to get together and he thought this would the safest way to do that. “Even though we are doing this today. I still want to encourage our faith-based community to be very careful when you are doing these types of things because we want to make sure our community is safe."
The church plans to continue its live streams until they can properly gather together again.
