Churches are one of the many places with its doors closed Sunday amid the coronavirus spreading so quickly, and the government’s action to step in.
As many local places of worship were devastated when they initially received the news, the next solution led to rely on the ability to live stream.
Family Life Church in Lafayette, decided within 24 hours of the news that they would promote their easy accessible live stream service. Pastors at Family Life say members who tuned in responded well on Sunday.
"Pastor Todd was preaching, I was actually on Facebook during the service and was trying to communicate even if it was just liking every comment or just responding back," said Pastor Brandon Miller.
The biggest goal is to provide the community with a sense of normalcy, including its worship singers still rehearsing and performing.
"This is not the end or the absolute, we’re going to be back together again. That’s the hope I carry in my heart, we are going to be able to congregate back together," said worship leader Kenetra Adams.
