Coronavirus: Rev. Robert Schuller To Hold Pop-Up Drive-In Church Service On Easter Sunday

Many churches across the Southland have been finding new ways to celebrate the Holy Week.

SANTA ANA (CBSLA) — Rev. Robert A. Schuller, the son of the founder of the Crystal Cathedral, will preside over a pop-up, drive-in church service for Easter Sunday.

Schuller will preach from a second-story balcony of an office complex in Santa Ana while congregants listen to his sermon and sing hymns along with him from their cars through an FM transmitter.

A similar service was held last weekend for Palm Sunday with 75 cars in attendance.

Schuller said he thinks it’s important for congregants to still feel a sense of fellowship while observing social distancing.

“With us being able to provide something like we are doing with the drive-in, at least people can have an opportunity to share a wave, a smile,” he said.

The service starts at 10 a.m.
