Freedom House Church did not seem all that free this weekend, according to TIME magazine.

Reports indicate Makeda Pennycooke, the church’s executive pastor of operations, sent an email to church volunteers asking that “only white people” greet worshippers at church services. The email reportedly said that leaders anticipated an increased number of visitors in the coming weeks, and that since “first impressions matter,” the church wants “the best of the best on the front doors.”



An outraged church member received the email and sent it to local news station, according to TIME.
