EUGENE, Ore. --- OneLove Church in Eugene is one of many churches to report an increase in attendance on Sunday, after Lane County was lowered to the moderate risk level.  

With the change in risk level, religious institutions now have a 50% capacity limit or 150 guests, whichever is smaller.

Lead Pastor Eric Fuller said there was a significant increase in attendance from this Sunday compared to previous weeks and he's glad to see restrictions are loosening. 

"For us it's very exciting that we're moving in the right direction. I think being able to see people face-to-face is kind of what we're made for," Fuller said.

Fuller said the church will continue to live stream all of their services online at theolc.org for those who still feel uncomfortable attending services in person.
