Church Adapts Easter Traditions

For Christians, Easter is the holiest of holidays. One tradition - receiving communion - won’t be possible this year for many followers because of the coronavirus crisis. But yesterday 3 CBS Philly visited a South Jersey church that found a way for followers to continue the meaningful custom. With Easter just days away, High Place Church in Merchantville got creative in how they celebrate and worship this year due to COVID-19. “We determined you know what, let’s hand out communion and then live-stream our service on Friday,” High Place Church Senior Pastor Edgar Alvarez said, “and then in the evening, we’re all going to partake virtually together.”
