INDIANAPOLIS — Easter looked different this year due to the social distancing restrictions in place to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

Because of the restrictions, people in Central Indiana attended church services online and children couldn't take part in large Easter egg hunts.

Erreol and Gavin Morgan attended a virtual service from New Direction Church and took communion from their couch.

"It really humbles you," Gavin said. "Makes you focus on the true blessing that you have."

While this couple decided to take the comfy route, some people are still dressing up in their Easter outfits.

For Pastor Kenneth Sullivan Jr., this Easter Sunday was a change of pace.

Even though it is different, he still welcomes the challenge.

"It's good all those things are on pause so churches now have to focus on the main message of Jesus," Sullivan Jr. said.
