With more than 1,300 coronavirus cases in the United States, one of the nation’s largest megachurches cancelled in-person Sunday services as more venues close their doors to large public gatherings.
Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, where world-famous pastor Joel Osteen preaches, averages about 52,000 attendees per week, but will go digital this Sunday as places of worship adjust to the spread of COVID-19.
“We will continue to monitor the situation week by week and hope to resume the assembly in the very near future,” the church announced Wednesday night online. There are at least 21 cases in Texas.
T.D Jakes is among the latest of mega church leaders to cancel service as seen int he below post on his twitter.
