The Wesleyan Church
The Church & COVID-19
Classic ideology of “come to us for church” is now in the form of house churches, inviting people to engage in worship and prayer.
“When COVID-19 hit, our little food pantry had to grow very quickly to meet the needs of our community.”
From giving care packages to those in the medical field to hanging American flags, churches in Arizona and California are still ministering in these COVID-19 days.
Around 100 people heard the gospel via car radio while maintaining social distancing at the church in Salem, Virginia.
Buildings may have been closed, but Wesleyans still found ways to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus.
The impact of COVID-19 on society’s most vulnerable is sobering.
