While they haven't been able to worship together in weeks, one church in southern Manitoba is feeling close once again thanks to their worship team.

Brendyn Dyck is the Worship Pastor at Word of Life Church in Niverville. He says he wanted to find a way to still make the worship on Easter Sunday meaningful, despite being pre-recorded. As somebody who is used to inviting a congregation to participate in worship, he's found the past few weeks difficult.

"I can tell you right now, I cannot wait until we're all together. I was talking with another one of my friends, he's a worship pastor at the Meeting Place in the city,  and he was saying that the day when we're all back together when we can, you know, lead worship in front of people, it's going to be one emotional morning."

online church gatherings. The chance to participate in worship in this way, though, was a bit "nerve-wracking. It's just different, right? It's a totally new way of worshipping and doing music."
