MEDFORD, Ore -- This weekend, Easter services are looking more like drive-in movies. Drive to church in your car and don't get out.
"We thought that people on Easter Sunday morning might like to get out of their house." said Pastor Dan with New Song Church in Medford. "We felt like right now, it's such an important time in our community to provide hope and especially with Easter weekend." said Pastor Jason with Hope City Church in White City.
These two churches are doing a drive-through style Easter service. "Everybody will be staying in their cars. So we will be practicing social distancing." said Pastor Jason. The service at Hope City Church is happening tomorrow. It will be in their parking lot. Cars will be spaced out. "Be just an encouraging day."
New Song Church is having their service all morning on Sunday. "Think about trying to do something creative and do something different." said Pastor Dan. There will be stations at this service. "We have doors all the way around our complex." Each door will be a different station, including scripture reading, a child's story and live worship."Each station is going to be a very meaningful experience for everybody that participates." said Pastor Dan
The biggest concern people have about this is safety. "It's very safe. I mean everyone's in their car. Their windows can be rolled up and we have loud speakers at each station." said Pastor Dan.
Both pastors tell NewsWatch 12 since it's Easter weekend, there's an important message to share with person. "The message of hope and the message of Resurrection. So for us we just picked this weekend and god just put it on our hearts to celebrate Easter, but also to really promote the idea of hope." said Pastor Jason.
