Due to the required social distancing, many church congregations have canceled gatherings and holding services; however, Pastor Marcus Kelley and his congregation at Grace Baptist Church in Pinson creatively managed to gather together to worship Sunday March, 29, all while maintaining a distance from each other. They had a “Drive-in Church Service.”
The worship led by Scott Diffee and sermon by Pastor Kelley was done on a stage outside of the church and could be heard in a multitude of ways.
One could “drive-in” and listen to the service from their vehicles or listen to it being broadcasted from FM radio as well. It was even broadcasted over Facebook.
Between the two services that were held, over 100 cars were at the drive-in.
Kelley’s message included: “The mission doesn’t change. We can’t stop. We won’t stop. Until Jesus calls us home. Listen, if we can’t gather physically… What do we do? We do it digitally.”
Grace Baptist will continue to have Drive-in Church at 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, April 5.
