Easter Sunday looks a little different this year with most congregations switching to new ways to worship amid the coronavirus pandemic.

CORONAVIRUS COVERAGE

Congregants at The Point Church in Clearwater are safely celebrating the holiday with a drive-in service.

Everyone stays in their cars, at least six feet away from each other.

Instead of saying Amen, they honk their horns.

Pastor Branson Rogers says this service is extra special.

He says it's the first time he's seeing parishioners in weeks.

There are two services today, one at 8:00 and another at 9:15. These are sold out: about 72 cars.

The Point plans on hosting more drive-in services in the future. To reserve a spot for you and your car, check out their website here.
