The president has joined many church services online in recent weeks, expressing solidarity with all those barred from attending to help stop the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.
“I watched on Sunday online and it was terrific by the way, but online is never going to be like being there,” he said during a Fox News interview in March.
The president has watched online services with Pastor Jack Graham from Prestonwood Baptist Church, Dr. Robert Jeffress from First Baptist Church in Dallas, Pastor Greg Laurie at Harvest Christian Fellowship Church, and Pastor Jentezen Franklin of Free Chapel.
