What Would Jesus Drink.. Church Congregation Meets In The Bar
A Texas church is trying to bring in new members by offering beer.
The church services take place in a pub so the congregation gets together and has a beer while the service takes place.
The pastor said they were looking for a place to set up away from the church and found the pub which is closed on Sundays. The owner said he was fine if they used the area.
The pub has been a good way for churchgoers and non-churchgoers to connect. Local musicians have also been given the chance to play while people meet.
The pastor said they get a happy hour price on the beer and have performed three baptisms in the bar.

The homebrewers and farming couple wanted to make a beer soap for their failing soap business so they teamed up with Jackalope Brewing Co to create the suds.
The soap is made with goat milk (instead of water), olive oil, coconut oil, milk and lye, and the scents are created with organic oils and no artificial fragrances.
The beer brand replaces half of the milk with Jackalope's original brews including Thunder Ann, Bearwalker and Rompo.
