Topeka’s Lakeview Church of the Nazarene has been holding a Drive-In Service since Easter, and pastor Rob Self says they will continue the practice for now. He said Lakeview will have a Drive-In Service at 11am every Sunday until the coronavirus shut down has passed.
“We had considered going back inside the Church on May 31st. But after that decision I found out that we would probably have more people listening on the radio in the parking lot then inside,” Self said.
According to parking attendants, they have had an average of around 100 persons in attendance.
“So, listening to our people’s concerns I believe we will probably revisit the possibility of going back inside on Father’s Day. We have precautionary measures in place for when we do; with social distancing of at least six feet apart, a no-touch thermometer, masks, gloves, and hand sanitizer,” Self said.
“This Sunday we will continue our “Drive-in” worship service at 11:00; until our people feel it’s safe. Our Church has continued to have great attendance and support from the community!”
The church will also have the services available on Facebook Live for those who can’t make it in person, and it is also broadcast on 91.3 through each car’s radio.
Lakeview Church of the Nazarene is located at 2835 SE Croco Road in southeast Topeka. For more information contact them at (785)224-8858 or LakeviewTopeka.org; or on Facebook: Topeka Lakeview Nazarene.
