#OTGYpsi: Ypsilanti Church Services Go Virtual During COVID-19 Outbreak

Apr 8, 2020

The coronavirus crisis has kept people from meeting in large groups, which includes going to church or any other weekly religious service.  Because of this, many of Ypsilanti's religious institutions are performing their sermons online, while still providing food and supplies to their neediest members.  Alex Clark, pastor of the Emmanuel Lutheran Church of Ypsilanti, provides further details on this new, digital venture in a conversation with WEMU's Lisa Barry and Concentrate Media's Sarah Rigg for this week's edition of "On the Ground-Ypsi."
