CHURCHES IN BARS! A New Trend?
CHRIST IN CULTURE
CBS News ran a short featurette on a church that meets in a bar. Apparently this is a very popular church. I have heard of churches doing this before. Historically even the famous evangelical preacher D. L. Moody did this in the late 1800s. I was curious if there were other churches that did this? Here is what I found on YouTube.
A former stand-up comedian and bartender offers an unusual alternative to traditional church. United Methodist pastor Jerry Herships' After Hours Denver holds worship services in bars. Herships believes that in today's world you have to reach people where they are. This is not a new idea. Herships says, "Jesus never said, 'If you need me, I'll be in the temple.' Jesus was always out in the world." The congregation makes a commitment to community service their main focus.
