Capitol area Christians safely celebrate Palm Sunday during covid-19 outbreak

Coronavirus

BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD)– Christians all over the capitol region are finding a safe way to worship as the holy week begins. Most pastors adhering to the governor’s stay at home orders and holding virtual worship online.

“Our call is not to have everyone together all at once regardless, it’s to live our faith wherever we are and so we have encouraged our people to have church in the sanctuary of their home,” Broadmoor Baptist Church Pastor Leonard Ezell said.

Ezell said his faithful do not need a building to feel the power of God, they instead focus on the relationships with others and keeping them safe during this difficult time. “Our faith isn’t so special that we would put our faith over the care and concern for others as well.”

Healing Place Church is offering similar online services. “In this studio you can feel the presence and the power of God, I hope you can feel that in your home right now,” Pastor Mike Hamal said during Sunday’s service.

The Baton Rouge Catholic Diocese is following suit. All of these faith leaders offered the words that things in our world will be better soon.
