(Christian Headlines) Multiple churches in Chicago, Illinois are already having in-person services even though restrictions prohibit them from exceeding a certain amount.
According to the state’s “Restore Illinois” plan, religious services with 10 or fewer people are permitted, NBC Chicago reports.
Gatherings of more than ten, however, are still restricted until phase four of the plan which will increase the maximum to 50 people.
Even though some churches have been having in-person services, some pastors are already facing threats of church shutdowns.
Pastor Joe Wyrostek of Metro Praise International Church noted that he is facing a “summary abatement” for having services with more than 10 people, according to a letter sent by the city’s health department.
