STONECREST—Atlanta’s Inspiration Station Praise 102.5 is partnering with New Birth Missionary Baptist Church to share words of hope, faith and encouragement during the global coronavirus pandemic. Beginning March 29, at 10 a.m. Praise 102.5 will broadcast New Birth’s full Sunday service to its listeners.
“In these trying times, Sunday worship is more important than ever,” said Praise 102.5 Program Director Derek Harper. “Praise 102.5 is pleased to partner with Dr. Bryant and New Birth to give Atlanta area listeners the ability to access Bible-based scripture and still be able to practice the measures put in place to combat the COVID-19 outbreak.”
Since the CDC and local officials have restricted in-person gatherings, New Birth and other churches across the country have relied on digital and streaming services to share their weekly sermons and inspirational messages. After launching a fully virtual service, New Birth has experienced a surge in online viewers with a virtual audience that doubles its typical cyber congregation.
“The coronavirus pandemic does not stop the church from being the church. These unprecedented times are forcing the Body of Christ to evolve its approach to reach more people and find innovative ways to stay connected to their congregations and communities,” said New Birth Senior Pastor Dr. Jamal Harrison Bryant. “We are excited about this partnership with Praise 102.5 and look forward to sharing words of hope and inspiration during these uncertain times.”
