REDDING, Calif.-The coronavirus has pushed places of worship to keep in touch with their community virtually this Easter.
The executive pastor for Pathway Church in Redding---tells Action News Now that Easter typically draws over a thousand churchgoers.
Executive Pastor, Todd Skinner says the transition to stream services online has been different, but all in all, it’s been a smooth one.
Earlier today, there were 4 to 5 administrators at the church making sure that Easter service was successfully streamed online.
When it comes to streaming services virtually, Skinner tells Action News Now, it’s not online streaming is not something new since they’ve been doing it for a while.
In their case, they’ve embraced technology, trying to keep in touch with their community.
“It’s caused us to have to do something,that I think, as we’ve been talking, we’re going to do more of after we’re allowed to meet together,” says Skinner.
Skinner tells Action News Now says the feedback from his congregation has been a positive one, but not being able to have that person to person contact is something they look forward to having again.
Streaming services online is something many places of worship are doing right now as they try to stay in touch with the community.
