The North Valley Baptist Church on De la Cruz Boulevard has been repeatedly fined for holding church services since late August.
But Pastor Jack Trieber has told his congregation that he intends to keep holding services. He also expects more fines from the County.
The Church received a cease-and-desist letter from the County.
The County charges that the Church failed to make sure attendees were wearing masks and social distancing. They were also singing indoors and that’s prohibited.
According to a KNTV report, Pastor Trieber posted a Facebook video that said over nine days North Valley Baptist Church has been fined $52,750. Wow.
In the video, Trieber said:
“We have the right to assemble before God. Not only do we have a constitutional right we have a constitutional command. We are not closing down this church. I hope you get this message. I know America does not want this to happen in her country and at this church.”
This is a developing story that we’ll be following.
