Church can soon resume worshipping in bar again

Worshippers barred from their East County church because it was zoned for a bar, and not religious services, may return as early as Sunday, the San Diego-Union Tribune reported.

A federal judge rejected a county order Wednesday prohibiting members of the Guatay Christian Fellowship from meeting at their building on Old Highway 80 in Guatay, the paper reported. He says they can resume meeting as soon as eight major safety violations have been repaired.

An attorney for the church told the paper the violations have already been fixed, and church members only need a county inspector's approval before holding services there.
