Come for the Beer, Stay for the Jesus!

Some churches now serving beer to try and reverse the trend of declining membership.]

With mainline religious congregations dwindling across America, a scattering of churches is trying to attract new members by creating a different sort of Christian community. They are gathering around craft beer. Some church groups are brewing it themselves, while others are bring the Holy Mysteries to a taproom. The result is not sloshed congregants; rather, it's an exploratory approach to do church differently.
I wonder what's going to happen when someone get's a DUI after attending one of these "services" and the church gets fined/sued over it?

What's new about this. Never heard of the Knights of Columbus?

Protestants are now doing it, so that makes it new. :stuck_out_tongue:

Don’t know about that. The Deacon’s and the Trustees of the Baptist Church I went to as a kid met in one of the local bars.
Be that as it may; if you study the history of prohibition a large part of it was anti-Catholicism. Perhaps we are over this so we can all drink! :wink:

They'll pray for redemption, of course. Lois
