Indoor Full Worship Service June 7, 2020

We had a full worship today at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Abilene, TX. Everyone wore masks, no one was permitted to sit within 6-10 feet. Communion was by a small container with grape juice and wafer. Those had to be picked up by each person. Some people wore masks the whole service, but were required if they got within six feet of someone.
