Gov. Gavin Newsom opened Phase 2 and excluded churches and lumped a constitutionally protected group – the first protected right mentioned in the Constitution, even before speech and the press – in with sports spectators in Phase 3, months away.
Church United and its network of pastors have declared a reopening date for church services of May 31, the Day of Pentecost. A significant date in the life of the church, the Day of Pentecost, as outlined in the book of Acts, commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and early followers of Christ Jesus. It marks a consequential milestone that millennia later, defines Christian community. May 31, 2020 is the 1,990th Birthday of the Church.
Churches across the state will open their congregations on May 31, with or without the permission of the governor. Unified in spirit, these pastors are willing to work with the Governor and appreciate the state’s effort to eliminate COVID-19, but the restrictions on churches have gone too far and too long. Churches will practice the same social distancing protocols required of secular enterprises to help minimize the COVID-19 threat that are being used by other reopening establishments.
Sign the Declaration of Essentiality in English or Spanish!
Read the Letter to the Governor in English or Spanish!
