Stadium allows room for distancing

Little Rock, Ark., congregations join together for outdoor worship.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Four Churches of Christ that had not yet resumed in-person worship found a way to gather with plenty of room for social distancing.

The Central, Pleasant Valley, Rose City and Sylvan Hills churches rented War Memorial Stadium.

The recent service was held at the 50-yard line and livestreamed on the Jumbotron and online. Masks were required to be worn when entering and exiting the stadium. Portable communion packets were supplied.

“Anyone who has been in Arkansas long knows about War Memorial Stadium, so it is an outstanding place to gather, and there is plenty of room,” Central minister Leon Barnes said.

The approach worked so well that the churches plan to do it again. For more information, see www.forlittlerock.org.
