LOS ANGELES (AP/RNS) -- Every year in August, tens of thousands of people fill the seats of Angel Stadium in Anaheim, not for baseball, but for the weekend-long Harvest Crusade.
LOS ANGELES (AP/RNS) -- Grace Community Church congregants in Sun Valley gathered indoors and sang hymns on Sunday (July 26), defying California regulations that aim to limit the spread of COVID-19.

It is for us a return to what we love the most, the fellowship of the saints and the worship of our Lord," said Pastor John MacArthur from the pulpit.
