A new church in San Jose provides beer for attendees after the service.
Bill Jenkins has started the new church in downtown San Jose in a bar call the Loft Bar and Bistro.
They hold their service at 9:30 Sunday mornings.
"Ninety-two percent of the population in Santa Clara County.. is unchurched. The majority of people there have rejected traditional forms of church. So Jenkins wants to provide church in a new way. Most people that come to ours [church] wouldnt touch a traditional church with a barge pole..
He made Urbanlife as unchurch-like as possible.
(singing Tim Wilson)
“It’s the First Baptist Bar and Grille...”
I know after going to a Calvary Chapel for several years, I cannot go back to a traditional church. I know others are use to it and like it but not my cup of tea.
