INDIANAPOLIS — A church in Carmel is holding worship services in hospital parking lots to pray for those inside the hospitals during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Well Church held a worship service Wednesday at IU Health Methodist Hospital to pray for patients and those on the front lines of the pandemic.

They started worshiping more at the beginning of this year before the social distancing standards were put into place. Once the church could no longer meet, they set up a page to start live streaming their services.

They wanted to be a blessing to medical workers and patients so they decided to set up a worship service in church parking lots, while still following social distancing standards.

Earlier this week, the church also held a worship service at St. Vincent's hospital.

"People came out of the hospital and were worshiping with us," Matthew Doudt said. "We met a lady who had a family member there whose got COVID-19 and she was just so thankful that we were there, people stopped and talked to us and we got to pray with people."

Doudt says they plan on worshiping at other local hospitals until they are told they can't.
