Church events

The religious communities of southwest Kansas are feeling the reaches of the COVID-19 pandemic and the State of Kansas’ limitations of how many people can be at any given gathering by cancelling in-person services and activities for their congregations at this time. Many churches are using technology for their services either over their websites or Facebook pages to keep contact with their parishioners. Others, depending on the size of the church, are having services as usual but limiting activities.
