WATCH: Los Angeles pastor brings down the house when he welcomes flock to Grace Community Church’s ‘peaceful protest’

Grace Community Church in Southern California defied tyrannical and Godless Governor Gavin Newsom (D) and held Sunday church services.

From Fox News:

California Gov. Gavin Newsom is overstepping his executive privileges with “draconian” restrictions by shutting down churches and telling believers they cannot worship during the coronavirus pandemic, a prominent pastor told “Fox News @ Night” Monday.

Pastor John MacArther says he has been warned he could face fines or arrest for defying Newsom’s July orders by hosting indoor services at Grace Community Church in Los Angeles County, which he says is not warranted by the reality of COVID-19.

“We feel like we are the most essential reality in the world,” MacArthur told host Shannon Bream. “Look, Jesus is Lord… He is the head of our church. Governor Newsom is not the head of the church. [Los Angeles] Mayor [Eric] Garcetti is not the head of the church.”

And the pastor welcomed back his flock in the best way possible.

As a matter of fact, he literally brought down the house.

The congregation went wild.

Other churches have defied Newsom by holding church services on the beach.

Where there’s a will, there’s a way… Besides, if masks work so great, why can’t people go to church?

It’s okay to go to all of these stupid protests and marches, but no church? We can go to the grocery store every day, but we can’t go to church once a week?

None of this makes any sense, especially when it’s a disease with a 99.7% survival rate. Wisely, Grace Community Church and Pastor MacArthur have retained legal counsel to stay open and provide services, and fight Governor Newsom’s illogical orders to shutter churches.
