Churchgoers may have Easter option

Mar 25, 2020 | Around Ottawa County | 2 comments

Reverend Annette Dimond of Trinity Methodist Church in Port Clinton has been working with local clergy and churches, sharing a plan to host a unique Easter service on Sunday, April 12. She wants everyone to attend, but not put themselves in danger of being exposed to the coronavirus pandemic.

“We’ve been planning a Sunday Service at the Sutton Center in Port Clinton, asking people to come in their vehicles and congregate in the parking lot at Sutton Center,” said Rev. Dimond. “Respondents will stay in their vehicles and dial in the 9 a.m. church service on their car radios.”

Rev. Dimond said that Sutton Center owner Bob Snyder has been very accommodating.

“Bob Snyder has been very generous and helpful in trying to make this happen,” said Rev. Dimond, who wants to offer a Sunday Service on April 5 at 9 a.m. under the special conditions.

“Everyone realizes we’re going to have to do things differently (because of the pandemic and Gov. Mike DeWine’s Stay at Home directive,” she said. “We’ve proven we know how to put this all together, and we know that having to do things differently isn’t going to keep Jesus in the tomb.”
