A New York City church has found a new home since an appeals court ruled that public schools can bar churches from renting their facilities.
Abundant Life Church, a Brooklyn congregation that initially met at P.S. 91 for worship, has been given rented space by the Beulah Church of the Nazarene. The congregation worshipped on Sunday at an annex of Beulah’s known as the Hope City Empowerment Center.
Pastor Karim Camara of Abundant Life explained that he had “started looking for a location” even before the legal decision was handed down as a cautionary measure. Because Camara had been to the annex before for community events, Hope City “was on my short list.”
Camara, who also serves as a member of the New York State Assembly, talked about helping other New York churches displaced by recent court rulings.
“We’re not directly involved in legal action,” said Camara to The Christian Post.
However, he and others were supporting political efforts on the issue. To read more, click here.
