Greenville, MS Mayor Errick Simmons’ Announcement that the City will Allow Drive-In Church Services
Greenville, MS—The following statement may be attributed to Jeremy Dys, Special Counsel for Litigation and Communications at First Liberty Institute:
“We thank Governor Reeves and Mayor Simmons for recognizing the importance of protecting religious liberty by clarifying that drive-in church services are allowed during this difficult time. Pastor Hamilton looks forward to being able to continue to meet the spiritual needs of his congregation while also abiding by public health guidelines and the Governor’s policy.”
First Liberty, WilmerHale, Mississippi Justice Institute, and Sean Callaghan represent Pastor Charles Hamilton, Jr King James Bible Baptist Church.
First Liberty’s team of legal experts continues to remain vigilant on the front lines of this crucial fight to ensure that our rights to religious freedom are not compromised.
With all the attacks against churches going on right now during the “new normal,” we believe the work we are doing is vital for our freedoms and our country. If you would consider supporting this work at such a critical time, we would be grateful.
