Outdoor Church Services

Okeene has not been immune to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic as it continues to plague the nation. Okeene school officials quarantined the junior high and high school for 14 days earlier this semester, utilizing distant learning during the quarantine as teachers and staff continued to work at the school. Churches and businesses have also independently taken different pre-cautions. Okeene First Baptist Church has held services outside periodically this year. The above photo was taken from FBC’s Oct. 11, 2020 morning services.
