CASPER, Wyo. – For those who are used to attending church every Sunday morning, the recent suspension of nearly all services can be quite the disruption to their regular routine.
Abiding by social distancing recommendations can also make it harder to experience that same sense of community and fellowship that many church-goers find comfort in through their regular attendance.
That is why we have put together this list of local alternative church services. Whether you are exploring faith for the first time, or simply aiming to stay connected to your congregation during quarantine, we hope this list can serve as a resource for those in need.
See any services that we are missing? Message us on Facebook and we will be sure to add them.

- Avoid close contact with people who are sick
- Stay home if you’re sick
