Oyedepo who made the announcement on social media stated that the decision is in line with the state of emergency declared by Governor Logan of Maryland.
He also stated that they will monitor information from health authorities before they decide to resume Church activities.
He shared a statement saying:
Although we are God’s children, we are still housed in a physical body. The health and safety of everyone who walks through our doors is of priority to us at Winners Chapel, Maryland @winnerschapelmaryland.
We have kept up with the latest news update on the Coronavirus (COVID-19), and in response to the state of emergency declared by Governor Logan of Maryland, our public attendance services this weekend in church have been cancelled.
We shall continue to keep close tabs with the news and reports from the CDC and local health authorities to know when it is safe to resume services in church.
On account of this development, we encourage everyone to watch our live services this Sunday at 9am.
Remember that all things are working together for good for those that love the Lord.
Please keep keeping everyone in prayer, our great nation as well as our world at large. There is power in prayer and the effectual fervent prayer of the righteous availeth much.
Do not forget to partake of the Lion’s meal (the Communion) daily.
