A video shows Scott Jewell and Jeff Strite wearing inflatable sumo wrestler costumes walking down the church aisle and bumping into each other.

"We haven't set a limit, but we're a smaller congregation, set up hand sanitizer stations, blocked off every other row, and posted the full service on our Facebook page so people didn't feel obligated to come if they were concerned for their health," the church told Reuters.

Some churches in U.S. states began to reopen last weekend after President Donald Trump said 'churches are essential' during a meeting with African American leaders held at a Ford Motor Co plant in Michigan on Thursday (May 21).
