Good news! The Palm Sunday service at the church under seige went very well. Many Presbyterians from other churches attended to support the congregation and the presence of an off duty police officer deterred any untoward incident from the troublemaker and his group.
We did get word that the troublemaker is trying to convince the police department that this is an internal dispute at the church in which the department should not get involved by permitting off duty officers to serve as security. At the request of the interim pastor, many of us (including me) are sending emails or phone calls to the sgt. in charge to apprise him of the true situation and the real need for peace officers on the premises at this time.
Continue to pray for this Church!
