John MacArthur, the pastor of Grace Community Church, was welcomed with cheers after he made a rather unusual announcement at the start of Sunday services.
“I’m so happy to welcome you to the Grace Community Church peaceful protest,” Dr. MacArthur said.
The congregation erupted into sustained cheers and applause.
MacArthur made national news a few weeks ago when he announced that Grace Community Church would be defying Gov. Gavin Newsom’s order banning indoor worship services.
A chaplain from the Los Angeles Police Department delivered the opening prayer.
