Public Eviction Deadline Looms for NYC Churches

Ad Feedback

Despite months of protests, the New York state House has yet to decide on a bill that would reverse the New York City school district's ban on using public schools for worship services. 

Sunday is the last day congregations will be able to meet for worship in New York City public schools.

Many church leaders are still at a loss for where their congregations will meet after this Sunday.
"Sunday, Feb. 12 will be the last day. We will worship that day. We have to come back on the 14th, that's a Tuesday night, and then on the 19th, which is next Sunday," Sal Sabino, pastor of 2,000-member Heavenly Vision Church, told CBN News.

"Those two last days is where the problem may be," he said." So what we plan to do is celebrate services outside the school."

The New York Senate passed legislation to reverse the school worship ban. It still needs to pass the house and get the governor's signature.
