Introducing Vend-a-Church!

Introducing Vend-a-Church! July 28, 2021


The final frontier of the consumer-driven approach to church. No more letting life in community shape you or make demands of you.  No more bouncing from church to church to look for the pew that’s “just right.”  No more grappling with that niggling fear that Jesus might actually expect something or grappling with the silly notion that the church is Christ’s body, active in the world.  No more lingering thoughts that it all might be about an encounter with God.

Vend-a-church makes it possible to set aside the annoying distractions caused by conversations about sacrifice, discipleship, and service.  You can cut to the chase and embrace church as performance, apply your preferences, and register for the experience of your choice.
