Not even 24 hours after Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church announced its plans to proceed with its three scheduled services this weekend, the Houston megachurch canceled all in-person services amid coronavirus concerns.

"Lakewood's leadership has decided not to hold public services this weekend. Instead, Lakewood will broadcast its services exclusively online... we will continue to monitor the situation week by week and hope to resume the assembly in the very near future," the church said in a statement on Twitter.

Lakewood's services will be broadcast on Facebook, YouTube, its website, and SiriusXM radio.
