When asked in writing for a permit to hold a beach service in Rehoboth, Pastor Robert Dekker recieved this reply:
"I am so sorry to inform you that I cannot grant your request to have church services on the public beach in Rehoboth. I cannot mix Church and State. I trust you understand. Wishing you the very best."
The church is saying "Regardless of your faith, all people should be hightly concerned over this civil rights violation" - what are your thoughts?
After being denied a "permit" for a church service on Rehoboth Beach a few weeks ago, Pastor Robert Dekker of New Covenant Presbyterian will be preaching a public sermon on July 4 at 930am entitled "A line in the sand". This sermon will be preached on the beach at the end of Rehoboth Avenue. The public is invited to assemble peacefully.
