Cheyenne Churches to resume public church services
With COVID-19 restrictions easing up, Cheyenne churches are looking to have public services this weekend. First United Methodist Church and Cheyenne Hills Church are among the churches that will have their first public church services since March 2020. During the pandemic, churches were streaming their services only online, due to health department guidelines.
"The church has been around a while now and we continue to have worship in different forms," Senior minister of First United Methodist Church, Mark Marston said.
Even though churches can host public services again, they still have rules to abide by, such as separating seating for guest. Some churches are only allowing a certain amount of people per service, such as First United Methodist Church only allowing 55 people per service. It is first come, first serve to members as they'll be greeted by ushers wearing masks. The churches are happy, as they can bring people back under the same roof again.
"I think people just want to generally get back together,” Senior pastor at Cheyenne Hills Church, Galen Huck said. “You miss the fellowship; you miss the connections and so I can just tell that's the part people are really missing."
Cheyenne Hills Church will have their service on Saturday, June 6 at 6:00pm. First United Methodist Church will have two services on Sunday, June 7, at 8:30am and 10:00am.
