California Court of Appeal upholds ban on indoor church services, sets aside lower court order allowing Grace Community Church to meet

(Disrn) In a late-night ruling on Saturday, the California Court of Appeal set aside a lower court order that would have allowed indoor church services to take place at John MacArthur’s Grace Community Church in Sun Valley.

“The reason immediate relief was required is because tomorrow morning Grace Community Church and its pastor, John MacArthur, intends to go forward with such religious services,” the court wrote.

Press release:

The California Court of Appeal today set aside a lower court order that would have allowed indoor services to take place at Grace Community Church in Sun Valley.

The Court of Appeal’s decision temporarily upholds the County’s Health Officer Orders prohibiting indoor worship services in order to protect congregants and the community as a whole from transmission of the highly contagious and potentially fatal COVID-19 virus.

A full hearing on the matter is scheduled for September 4.  View article →
