According to Christian Post, local authorities had agreed to pay the small church $800,000 in settlement for barring indoor worship during COVID-19 lockdowns.
The lawsuit against COVID-19 protocols was filed last August after Pastor John MacArthur recognized a responsibility to continue worship services to parishioners even during the challenging time of national calamities.

The church IS essential.
