Associated Press Release

WOODSTOCK, Ga. (AP) -- Members of a north Georgia church say they've been locked out of their congregation amid a dispute involving the pastor.

People who worship at Welcome All Baptist Church in Woodstock say they were unable to attend Easter services. They say they've been told they will be arrested if they are caught trespassing.

WSB-TV reports that a group of church-goers gathered over the weekend near the church, which had a locked access gate a "no trespassing" sign on the front door.

Church members say they voted Pastor Willard Hambrick out of his position amid a dispute over money.

But Hambrick insists that he's still the Welcome All pastor and the people criticizing him are the ones causing problems. Hambrick said the church members who aren't allowed "have been extricated for being unbecoming Christians."
