In an effort to curb the pandemic of the novel coronavirus, United States Vice President Mike Pence asked people of faith to forego worshipping together in groups of 10 or more.
“We really believe this is a time when people should avoid gatherings of more than 10 people,” Pence said in a recent interview. “And, and so, we continue to urge churches around America to heed to that.”
“We’re so grateful to churches and synagogues and places of worship around America that have heeded the president’s coronavirus guidelines for America,” Pence added.
Pence had previously gone a step further and asked that those who regularly tithe or donate to their church still do so as many churches are still going out of their way to both provide services to their attenders but also have increased efforts to serve their local community.
“It’s still a good idea to, if you can, to go ahead and make that donation, because all the ministries are continuing to play a vital role in our communities,” said Pence at a press conference at the White House.
