The Bethel Church receives lots of of requests to treatment coronavirus stress
Bethel has opened online healing rooms to help people deal with the stress and anxiety caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
The church, based in Redding, California, has ceased worship and closed its campus as a result of the outbreak. It has also interrupted its personal healing service in local hospitals.
However, it has mobilized volunteers to bring the healing service online so that people can continue to receive spiritual support while adhering to the rules of social distancing.
"In the healing rooms, we pursue the Holy Spirit and his healing power in a special time of service," says his website.
"It is a place where we see God bringing life, wholeness and love to people who are suffering from physical ailments. We are joyful believers who see how God brings complete restoration and healing."
Chris Gore, director of the Bethel Healing Department, told The Washington Post states that around 700 volunteer healers work together to make the ministry available seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific Time.
He said they receive around a hundred calls a day from around the world, with the most common request regarding the stress related to the coronavirus pandemic.
He wrote on his Facebook page asking people to share the news "so people know we are here to pray for them".
