While all Easter services in Massachusetts are canceled to prevent the spread of the deadly new coronavirus, one church in Hopkinton made sure people had a way to come together -- from the comfort and safety of their own cars.

At Vineyard Church, officials created a socially distanced approach so members could still be reminded of the story of Easter.

The church has held drive-thru prayer services once a week and converted all its services to an online platform.

Though there have been a lot of changes for the pastors and their members in such a short time, the length of the line for the drive-thru service proved it's much needed and appreciated.

The service lasted from 3-5 p.m. Saturday.

The Vineyard Church said it will continue to do services online, and drive-thru prayer once a week, for as long as they need to.

The COVID-19 pandemic means no in-person church services and no large egg hunts this year. But despite the changes, New Englanders are determined to celebrate in different ways than usual.
