Some local churches are celebrating Palm Sunday in person this year, after the pandemic kept them from gathering in 2020.

Last Easter looked a little different for Crossroads Christian Church in Newburgh.

“Last year we were part of Easter Together, which was a gathering that happened at Eastland Mall with several churches coming together,” said Growth Team Leader, Andrew Bondurant. “We will be back in person this year though, so we are excited about that.”

Celebrating Palm Sunday, Crossroads invited friends and family to safely join their worship face-to-face.

“We continue to ask anyone that comes in the building to wear masks during the service times to make sure everyone is staying as safe as possible and [we’re] still encouraging social distancing as well,” Bondurant told 44News.

Since Crossroads restarted their in-person services, they’ve asked people to RSVP to prepare for people coming. They also have multiple overflow worship spaces for people to attend the service, whether they chose to do so in person or online.

For members of the church, being back in person means sharing special moments with loved ones.

“We’ve been a member of Crossroads for about 7 or 8 years. So many things have changed in the last year, but as we get closer and closer to families and our community being vaccinated, then we do get back to normal,” says Andrea Croslyn.

“It feels really good to be in our church with our family and with our church family celebrating Easter and celebrating Palm Sunday together.”

Crossroads Christian Church in Newburgh is holding Easter Sunday services 8, 9:30, and 11 a.m.

Conditions are dry, but chilly. Winds have strengthened out of the north making it feel bitterly cold. As we head into the overnight hours temperatures will fall into the mid 20s. As winds stay gusty out of the north it will make it feel more like the teens Sunday morning under clear skies. The majority of the Tri-State will remain dry come Sunday afternoon. There is a slim chance that some of our communities across the far southern reaches of the Tri-State could see some light snowfall early in the afternoon, but it's looking like it will stay south and east of the Tri-State. We'll climb to a high temperature of 38° with sunny and breezy conditions. Gusts out of the north could reach 25-30 MPH.
