The power of God was on display in Seattle's Cal Anderson Park on Sunday as hundreds of people gathered for the "Let Us Worship" rally organized by Bethel Music's Sean Feucht.
The area, formerly known as CHOP or CHAZ, had been a focal point for protesters who took over the neighborhood earlier this summer. Demonstrators came to this section of the city after growing tensions following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
But Sunday's event was packed with prayer and praise for the Holy Spirit.
Feucht shared a video on Instagram that shows men, women, and children giving their lives to Christ. The crowd sang and danced freely without fear of COVID-19.
"The church SHOWED UP and God met us!!!! God poured out his Presence, love, and kindness in immeasurable ways last night over the area formerly known as CHOP," the worship leader wrote.
Feucht explained that the assembly of worshippers were encouraged to use safeguards against the coronavirus, but Christians should not be censured for wanting to congregate while other nonreligious protests are approved by politicians.
"Government leaders voiced support for outdoor protests in recent months, they should not be condemning Christians seeking to gather in worship," Feucht wrote on a Facebook post last month. "Masks were made available, social distancing was encouraged, and the gathering was held outside as an extra precaution. The freedom to worship God is the constitutional right of every American citizen and those who exercise this right should not be unfairly targeted for criticism."
Despite violent protesters who tried to shut down the rally, Feucht and the rest of the crowd continued to worship.
"We had an entire satanic cult march through the worshippers the entire time yelling 'Hail Satan!' They killed our generators at one point...yet through it all...SEATTLE NEVER STOPPED SINGING!!! We saw salvations, healings, miracles, and baptisms! It was on another level! THE CHURCH REFUSED TO BE INTIMIDATED AND GOD KEPT POURING OUT!"
