West Texas church group plans to congregate at local bar
ABILENE, TX — A west Texas church is turning to a local bar to hold their church services. Members of the Southern Hills Church of Christ in Abilene are trading the conventional steeple building for a bar. Church members say they wanted to pick a place where people can feel comfortable. It was a bit of a shock for some of the church leaders in the area, but they quickly embraced the idea of bar church. While the bar will be open, alcohol wont be served until after service. Members say they expect criticism and backlash, but they're ready for it.
