Christians in Seattle rallied in the streets after the city officials blocked their venue in the park for a worship event. The city’s attempt did not stop them to gather in prayer and worship.
Seattle’s Park and Recreation closed the Seattle’s Gas Works Park on September 7. They claimed that it was intended to prevent “anticipated crowding that could impact public health of residents”. Though they did not explain the reason for the closure, Sean Feucht, leader of the worship rally, denounced the statement.

Sean told Fox News, “There’s just a bias. You know, it’s the height of hypocrisy right now that they’re letting these cities, you know, succumb to rioting and burning and pillaging. And yet they’re targeting Christians.”
The ‘Hold the Line’ founder referenced to the ongoing protests and riots still happening in the area. Seattle Times just reported 200 people marching in protest that broke out in chaos on Labor Day.
Sean said in a statement, “America was founded on the freedom to worship. Politicians can write press releases. They can make threats They can shut down parks.”
He continued, “They can put up fences. But they can’t stop the Church of Christ from worshipping the One True God! We’re here as citizens of America and citizens of the Kingdom of God. And we won’t be silenced!”
Consequently, the worship event turned into a “worship protest”. Sean joked of calling the event a “Worship Protest for legal reasons”.
We’re calling tonight a “Worship Protest” for legal reasons. ????
See ya in the streets next to GasWorks Park!
Live on Facebook at 6pm!

Nonetheless, “for where two or three gathered in His name, there He is with us.” Indeed, God still moved in the midst of the Seattle Christians. Sean told CBN News that the Worship Protest was powerful and “God lit the place up with miracles, baptisms, salvations, racial reconciliation (with the police!) and HOPE!!”
He added, “The Lord called me to declare that this is a new Jesus people movement. And that the restrictions imposed by politicians are only making the church stronger.”
