D’Iberville church offers drive-in service
As many churches transition to live-streaming services during this time, one D’Iberville congregation found a new way to come together while also keeping their distance.
Worshippers gathered in their vehicles at the parking lot of Infinity Church’s new location for a drive-in church service Sunday.
The service followed a mostly traditional format except for the honking of horns to kick things off and people chatting from their cars to maintain a social distance.
Pastor Rick August says the opportunity to see everyone again makes it all worthwhile. “It’s like cold water in the desert. You know, just to be able to lay eyes on people and to be in one place and the people are so excited. There’s a level of energy and exuberance that’s here.”
August says the church coordinated with the City of D’Iberville to make sure the proper public health and safety guidelines were followed for the event.
