Thousands of churches across America have adopted a portable strategy for their church, and movie theaters have become popular options. But we’ve noticed a key area where churches who meet in movie theaters consistently get stuck: children’s and student ministry.
My sister has always struggled with the Church. She went for a while, exploring different church options, but found most to be unwelcoming, unfriendly. There were many weeks when she would sit alone, no one ever taking the time to speak with her beyond greeting her at the door. In her experience, the door was where a church’s welcoming stopped.
Today, she has walked away from the church.
