Kansas City, Missouri — Hundreds of Christians gathered at Mill Creek Park for the Let Us Worship event on Saturday. Kansas City is the 45th stop for this event.
Nashville saw a similar event a week ago and brought some criticism from city leaders.
Cases of COVID-19 continue to grow, but many who attended the event did not wear masks.
“We are now on the verge of a major crisis in the United States,” said event organizer Sean Feucht. “You have a pandemic, many citizens are worried, and you really have many churches that are still closed.”
Feucht said this gives believers around the world the opportunity to worship together during uncertain times.
“Just singing together,” Feucht said. “It just does something to you. It gives you so much life and so much hope.”
“I forgot what it was like to be outside,” said attendee El Linda Dutoit.
Kansas City Missouri Health Department said, especially for religious events Events with more than 250 people need to maintain a social distance. If there is a record of attendees and social distance is not possible, we will require people over 2 years old to wear a mask.
“People can wear masks if they wish,” Feucht said. “If they don’t belong to the same family, they can be socially distant. They have all those opportunities, which is why we meet in such a big park.”
People said they depended on their faith to spot them.
“I’m not worried,” said attendee Esther Rogers. “I’m not afraid of it.”
“When people get together to worship and praise God, I believe that God protects them,” said attendee Paul Cremesld.
