A reader board sits outside of a closed church in the wake of the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, Sunday, April 5, 2020, in Cincinnati.

Most churches are complying with stay-at-home orders and not hosting in-person services amid the global pandemic. But without their crowds on Sunday, how are local small churches adjusting to survive?


Some are providing virtual services, and others are maintaining their long-running social programs despite the challenges of doing so while social distancing.

Joining Cincinnati Edition to talk about the issue are St. Peter's United Church of Christ Pastor Derek Terry and Madison Avenue Christian Church Senior Minister Chinna Simon.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
