Dear Friends and Family,
As you know, LA County is attempting to implement a public health order that results in our inability to both comply with that order and also have our church open.
Pastor John and our unanimous Board of Elders at Grace Community Church are standing firm that church is essential and we are protected in California and the United States to serve our church community and fulfill the commands of Scripture to worship together.
The LA County Board of Supervisors are continuing to try to shut down our church, and we hope to show them our earnestness in our faith and practice in obedience to our Lord, and that we do not have a spirit of rebellion.
We would like them to hear from us. We ask that you consider contacting them and expressing the simple message that church is essential.
Here is a sample email below and the contact information for the Board.
Thank you for standing together with Pastor John, with our fundamentally constitutionally protected rights, and most importantly, with sound theology.
Grace Community Church
Dear Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors,
We respectfully request that you cease your attempt to enforce your order against Grace Community Church.
We stand together as Christians in our constitutionally protected fundamental right that Church is essential.
Our government is obligated to protect our liberties and freedoms, especially our free exercise of religion, and we ask you to fulfill that obligation to us.
Hon. Mark Ridley-Thomas
