Local church will hold Easter Sunday service on video calling app

BECKLEY, WV (WOAY) – Easter is this Sunday, and though coronavirus may prevent people from celebrating together in person, technology has stepped in as a way to bring services into your own home.

This year, churches across the state are finding new ways to connect with their members. Bishop Eunice Jones, Pastor of God’s House of Miracles says her congregation will have service through a video calling app called Google Duo.

“I do feel upbeat about the service and I’m excited. I will miss being with the people we’re still together in spirit. There are many things like you said we can send a text to one and other, to the children and they’ll really find out what Easter is all about also,” said Jones.

The video calling app will allow multiple members to join a joint phone call. Pastor Jones says Easter Sunday will be conducted as regular service, just not in person.

“And we’re going to do like we usually do, we’re going into our Sunday school and then to our morning worship,” said Jones.

Jones said she is hoping events like this will remind people to keep their faith.
