A large Alabama congregation has returned to online only worship services following what its pastor described as a “spike” in COVID-19 cases among the membership.

First Baptist Church of Tillmans Corner, a Mobile-based congregation with approximately 1,500 members, had recently reopened with socially-distanced worship services of about 350 people.

However, in an announcement posted on Facebook Wednesday, the church's pastor explained that they were canceling in-person services as well as their Kids Camp, which was going to begin next week.
