The whole situation has left Dave King feeling bewildered.
During the pandemic, King hosted a meeting of mostly older Vineyard members — including Carol Wimber, John’s widow — on Sundays to watch the church’s livestream while sitting outside. They eventually turned off the stream and started holding worship services on their own.
When Scott heard what they were doing, things went south. Scott, who lives a few doors down from King, would tell him that “he loves us and was for us” but then express his displeasure, eventually telling King not to come back to the church when in-person services resumed.
“We’re not a threat to anyone,” King said. “I have no idea why we are at the center of this.”
