As Easter weekend approaches, many families are preparing for their second weekend of the pandemic. While hundreds of thousands of people have been vaccinated and will be able to gather to celebrate, many are still not yet vaccinated. This has had a significant impact on churches in Tarrant County, Texas, and across the country. Tarrant Churches Together is a non-profit organization based in Forth Worth that brings together churches and religious organizations from across the county to serve the community. According to its executive director, Yearby, churches in his organization can offer services that are more specifically tailored to certain topics and age groups, in addition to expanding them when they can offer them online.
However, larger churches that were already broadcasting their services online were better able to make the transition to fully virtual services during the pandemic. A study published by Gallup shows that the number of church members, overall, is lower than it has been in almost a decade. This is likely due to the pandemic and its effects on church attendance. While some churches have been able to make the transition to virtual services, others have not been as successful.

This has had a significant impact on church attendance and membership numbers. As Easter weekend approaches, it is important to remember those who are still unable to attend services due to the pandemic.
