WNY church plans to hold Sun. service at half capacity despite restrictions

Old Time Baptist Church leaders gathered with state politicians in Hamburg yesterday to call on Governor Cuomo to "open up" houses of worship.

Republican state Assemblyman David DiPietro says he's seen crowding in grocery stores, yet some New Yorkers are still restricted from attending church.

Governor Cuomo won't let churches fully open until phase four of his COVID-19 comeback plan.

The Buffalo-area church held an "in person" service this past Sunday while implementing social distancing and the wearing of masks.

President Trump has called churches "essential" and is demanding states open up houses of worship immediately.
