Some New York City congregations were forced to hold Sunday worship services on the street.
Many thought they'd be able to continue meeting inside public schools after a judge issued a 10-day restraining order blocking the city from enforcing its ban on worship.
But Friday, a federal appeals court ruled the order only applied to the Bronx Household of Faith, the only plaintiff named in the case.
Meanwhile, the future of more than 60 congregations remains uncertain.
They are still waiting for a judge's decision and hoping the New York state assembly will approve a bill that would give worshippers access to public schools.
