For the past 45 years Grace Community Church has leased a large portion of its parking lot from Los Angeles County.
On Friday the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works terminated that agreement – no doubt in retaliation for the church invoking its Constitutional rights to gather for Sunday worship.
“If Grace fails to vacate the premise as required, the District may enter the premises and remove Grace’s personal property,” the letter said.
The California mega-church was given 30-days to to vacate the property. The church had been paying $8301.41 per month to use the parking lot.
