Pictures of members of the Greensboro United Church of Christ are displayed on the pews where the congregation normally sits in person to attend their Sunday worship service before COVID-19. Since March 15 the minister, Ed Sunday-Winters, organist Hal Parker and videographer Kyle Gray, have run the Sunday service virtually at 10 a.m. every week on YouTube at GUCCVT.org/sermons. Following the service, Judy Dales hosts a virtual coffee hour on Zoom. The picture idea started when the minister shared how hard it was to give a sermon to an empty church. After that, members started bringing in pictures of themselves to help virtually fill the church.
