Many churches are offering drive-thru prayer — and one church is even planning a drive-in service with a jumbotron — as congregations are no longer able to meet in person for large gatherings to limit the spread of the coronavirus outbreak.
Troy Brewer, senior pastor of 5,000-member OpenDoor Church in Burleson, Texas, in Fort Worth area, told Fox News the circumstances may hinder their outreach globally but now is the time to focus on the local community.
“We want to love people, bless people, and we want to pray,” Brewer said. “We want to be available to people and serve them.”
Other churches are doing similar outreach with drive-thru prayer. In Dayton, Tenn., the congregation at Grace Bible Church will offer drive-in service on Sunday, complete with a jumbotron.
At OpenDoor Church, the 53-year-old pastor, who started the church in 1995, said people can drive up to their church Wednesday night and three service times on Sunday and church leadership will pray for, encourage, and bless them while they stay in their cars. . .
