Easter Week services go online

There are two holidays Christians look forward to most, Christmas and Easter.

However, Christians around the country observing Easter in 2020 will have to do so online. Indeed, if Minnesota schools have begun "distance learning," churches are now holding "distance worship."

As COVID-19 continues to run rampant across the country and Minnesota's "Stay Home" order remains in place, Windom worshippers are fully planning to hear and watch their pastors' Easter messages from the comfort of their homes.

For the fourth consecutive Sunday, churches have closed their doors to group worship and pastors are delivering their Sunday messages via website, Facebook Live and other streaming services.

What those online connections cannot provide is communion, and for some churches, communion is a weekly staple. For others it may be a once a month, quarterly or special occasion provision.

For all, it's a fundamental part of Easter. After all, communion originated during Jesus' last supper with his disciples.

Consequently, a couple of churches have gotten creative with communion in a world of social distancing and distance worship.

For more on what two local churches are doing with communion, despite being online, see the story on the Faith & Family page in the April 8 issue of the Cottonwood County Citizen on newsstands today.
