CHICO, Calif. - Churches are getting creative during this pandemic to continue service. One local church had a drive-in service for Easter Sunday.

Churchgoers maintained social distancing by lining their vehicles in the parking lot of Pleasant Valley Baptist Church.

Pastor Tim Ruhl gave a service on a stage in front of the parking lot.

“We've done this the past three weeks they’ve all been online -  if this is a venue were allowed to have and maybe as this thing flattens out well do whatever we can do accommodate the needs of our people,” Ruhl said.

There were loudspeakers covered in the parking lot for the audience to hear.

“I love it because we're able to still be in fellowship here especially quarantined and see people from afar and wave to them,” member of the church, Julia Ronneberg said.

Members were able to open their windows to listen to the message or join on the church's’ Facebook live.

“It's amazing. I think like at a time like this when the world needs a lot of hope right now, knowing that Jesus rose for us and he's living for us, he's the one true living hope for the world right now,” member of the church, Natasha Yunas said.

At the end of the service, they gave out sanitized bags filled with Easter eggs so families could go home and host their own Easter egg hunt.

if you missed their service, there will be more services virtually online through their Facebook Live.
