Without a Prayer


Neighbors never complained about the church members meeting in a house in Gilbert, Arizona. In fact, they say they didn't even know about the meetings, which isn't surprising considering the church usually had about seven people attending. But a city code enforcement officer saw signs directing people to the church and ordered them to stop holding meetings. A city ordinance banned religious meetings in private homes. After media picked up on the story, the town council voted to change the law to allow religious meetings.
