California Church Changes Course, Moves Services Back Outdoors

Just a few weeks ago, North Valley Baptist Church Pastor Jack Trieber was vowing his Santa Clara, California, congregation would not submit to Gov. Gavin Newsom’s Covid restrictions.

“We are not closing down this church,” Trieber declared in a video address that went viral on the Internet. That declaration came after officials imposed more than $50,000 in fines against the congregation for holding indoor services, contrary to the restrictions.

This past Sunday, however, Trieber preached to his congregation outdoors, with congregants sitting in their cars listening to him on their vehicles’ radios. Instead of the familiar “Amen” in response to the sermon, congregants honked their horns.

“Trieber said he came to the decision to hold outdoors services after much prayer and fasting. ‘We have been so conditioned in America [that] we have to fight everything,’ Trieber said,” according to Christian Headlines (CH).

“Trieber read from Exodus 14:14 – ‘The Lord shall fight for you’ — and said he was handing the battle to God instead of personally fighting it. In Scripture, Trieber said, ‘God fought many of the battles with the people doing nothing,’” CH reported.

“Santa Clara County had filed a lawsuit against the church but has dropped it in light of the church moving its services outdoors, he said. ‘To me, that’s a victory,’ Trieber said,” CH reported.

  1. The state will lose this ruling of “emergency” in court next year. Meantime the “Disgust Immunology” humans will continue to ratchet up the #1 virus in America…FEAR! You have some research to do if you can’t figure out what’s going on. The #’s do not lie inspite of the Covid payments to hospitals …(13K) as the population of Santa Clara County is over 1.9 Million and the covid deaths stand at 296 (aka 15 deaths per 100,000 ) PLEASE…. compare this to YTD death rates by Suicide, Alcoholism, Drug Abuse and any other means of death…. And tell us… why we need to “lockdown” again in October? or is it Nov 5?… whatever the date… a second lockdown is designed to destroy the economy and start the process of the NWO – or as my friends in Davos 2021 would say… “the great reset” Romans 8:38
