SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – On Sunday, Sacramento’s Capital Christian Center, one of the biggest churches in our area, held its first indoor service since the Supreme Court ruling that California can’t ban indoor worship due to COVID-19.
The church said up to 600 people were allowed in the room, which amounts to 25% capacity – a limitation the high court allowed California to put in place.READ MORE: Disguised On DoorDash? Several Chain Restaurants Marketing Food Under Different Names
