Awaken Church’s debut service at the Hotel del Coronado, Coronado, California was accompanied by chanting rather than conventional church bells, while protestors waving LGBTQ+ flags and banners gathered outside on Sunday afternoon.
Protesters claimed that the church’s founders used social media to spread harsh sentiments against the LGBTQ+ community.
They also claimed that the church’s political and social beliefs would have a harmful impact on the community.
Awaken Church, which has 6 existing campuses in the county, plans to establish a Coronado location, according to its website, with sample services beginning this year.
The conflict has culminated in a petition attempting to stop the church’s expansion to the island.
Protesters pledged to return anytime the church hosts a service in Coronado, while several churchgoers indicated a desire for open discourse.
