The city prosecutor threatened to press criminal charges against the pastor and the congregation of Harvest Rock Church. That’s right, folks — criminal charges.
Harvest Rock has been holding indoor worship services in violation of Governor Gavin Newsom’s China Virus orders. The congregation was also observed not wearing masks and not complying with social distancing rules.
“All of these are violations of the law,” prosecutor Michael Dowd wrote in a threatening letter to the church.
The governor also says churches may not hold indoor services – and Christians may not sing songs or recite the Lord’s Prayer. Even home Bible studies are covered under the order.
