Pastor cowden says he still streams his service online for those folks who aren't ready for in-person services.

"that's been a great service to offer and people really appreciate it cause some have a lot of underlying health conditions that they feel they need to stay home for so it's just a way to keep connected for people who kind've need that."

"i think people are breathing a sigh of relief, not that everything is completely over but there are some relaxations for the recommendations.

People are feeling a little more comfortable.

More people have gotten their vaccines."

And... back at remnant church... the church leaders say they have a lot to give praise for this spring.

"together we can make a difference kingdom mentality, not remnant mentality, not bridge mentality, or any other church mentality, it's about the kingdom of god and nothing else."
