GOSHEN — A prayer group will not be allowed to use courthouse property next month due to COVID-19 concerns.

The Elkhart County Board of Commissioners voted to deny the request from Courtside Ministries to set up a table outside the courts buildings in Elkhart and Goshen. The volunteers, part of a national organization based in Chicago, have been offering prayers to passersby outside Elkhart County courts weekly for about six years.
