A new Little Rock church called The River will hold both of its Easter services at The Rev Room, a bar and nightclub in the city’s River Market.
Pastor Shane Montgomery told KLRT-TV that it’s an effort to attract a new audience to his nondenominational ministry.
However, bar employees say it’s not yet clear if their liquor license will allow them to serve beer and booze during a Sunday morning service.
Ya know, this really isn’t news, or at least not a first. Examples are endless. I immediately think of Erwin McManus’ Mosaic church, which for years met in a downtown Los Angeles nightclub. As Ted Olsen of Christianity Today quipped:
“What will they think of next? Churches in movie theaters? Cord-less telephones?”
