I would like to ask you a very important question: why haven’t churches reopened in this time of crisis?

In my opinion, as person who goes to church and worships God, going to church is a very important thing to me. Church is a time where people dedicate a part of their day or week to their God.

Yes, you can worship at home. But, that’s not the reason I am writing you. Why can a store like Target or a hair salon be open in Peachtree City, but church can’t? It’s absurd and just mind-boggling.

I understand when people say, ”We need to social distance.” I respect that. However, you can have people six feet apart in the parking lot and social distance. You can get the preacher on a little stage or at a podium and he can give a sermon or talk. It’s easy and it doesn’t make sense why churches in the Peachtree City or Fayetteville area don’t try it out. Thank you.

  1. Georgia has never forced churches to close. Sorry, I have no idea where you got your information from but it’s false. Any closings were voluntary. If your church has closed, you should call your pastor and ask him or her why. Tell them about your parking lot idea, too.
