The Christian community refused to let city officials in Seattle, Washington, shut down a Labor Day worship event organized by "Hold the Line" founder Sean Feucht.

In a video posted on Twitter, Feucht said, "The city decided to barricade the entire park for our peaceful worship and prayer gathering."

So the event became a "worship protest" and was moved into the street near Gas Works Park.

Seattle Parks and Recreation closed the area on Sept. 4, citing that the decision was "due to anticipated crowding that could impact the public health of residents."

Feucht told CBN News that the worship protest was still powerful and "the Spirit of God moved."

"The Lord called me to declare that this is a new Jesus People movement," he added, saying that the restrictions imposed by politicians "are only making the church stronger."
