Georgia Megachurch Suspends Services Until 2021

The Christian Post reports:

Andy Stanley, leader of the multi-campus North Point Community Church in Alpharetta, Georgia, announced Tuesday that in-person services have been suspended until 2021 because he cannot guarantee the safety of members in the wake of increasing coronavirus infections.

“Based on the uptick in COVID-19 cases, the results of our attendee surveys and the experiences of churches that have already reopened we’ve decided to suspend in-person adult worship services for the remainder of the year,” Stanley announced on Facebook.

He noted that he is aware that some people may judge his faith for the decision of support him for it but explained that he studied the experience of comparable megachurches which tried to reopen in recent weeks.
