Churches haven’t been ordered to close their doors during the COVID-19 crisis, however, many churches have decided to protect their congregations by closing anyway and offering services online.
Some local churches were already offering services online before the pandemic hit, now others are finding ways to make that jump online to continue their messages through the internet.
The Courier did a callout to local churches and asked them to share information (times, links, etc.) regarding Facebook Live, YouTube, or Zoom meetings for church services.
Below is an online church directory. Others are invited to email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the list online.
