An Outbreak Of Coronavirus Sermons

Churches of Christ across America have been canceling worship services, gospel meetings and Bible classes in an effort to help “flatten the curve” of the deadly coronavirus, but the disease hasn’t squelched the gospel. To the contrary, the virus has inspired preachers and teachers to re-examine God’s Word in the context of the ongoing pandemic.

There has been an outbreak of sermons about fear, tribulation, sin and other topics as Christians try to make sense of extraordinary times. Many of the lessons are being live-streamed to people’s homes from empty auditoriums or preachers’ offices. Some churches are broadcasting interactive video classes and lectures precisely to address issues raised by the changes in worship the virus has inspired.

Below is a list of podcasts and videos produced at non-institutional churches of Christ in March, April and May. We welcome link suggestions for sermons we haven’t discovered in our own online searches.
