Churches have a handle on COVID restrictions for Easter services


GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — The doors of the church are open for Easter Sunday. Several services are available at different times in-person. The Grand Junction Church of Christ sees this Easter as a revival for churches to grow back attendance.

“We fully expect, on Easter Sunday, that we’ll have probably more than we’ve had in the past year and that’s our hope,” Pastor Doug Clayton shares, “It’s kind of a resurrection of sorts for our church, for all churches, to make this a marker this Sunday to come back and to reengage in faith.”

A few strategies are being applied to sanctify heath and safety during service. Communion servings, for example, are individually wrapped, made for single-use disposal.

“Although you have to keep your mask on while walking and in fellowship with others, once seated, you can enjoy the Easter service mask-free,” Cora Dickey informs.

Plans are also available for younger guests to celebrate as well.

“We offer a children’s church setting for our young kids, from very little toddlers up through fifth grade, to go and focus in an area that they can understand even better and connect well with;” Charlie DeLong explains, “and then, after our services, about 11:30, we’ll have an Easter egg hunt for the kids to get them out and run around and do the things they look forward to also to celebrate the Easter holiday.”

A variety of denominations call the Grand Valley home. they all are looking forward to a renewed Easter celebration this year. Whether it’s your first time at church, or first time in a while, an Easter service is near for you to join in fellowship.
