LEXINGTON, Ky — In a bizarre display, a self-identifying church in Kentucky turned their Sunday service in a Super Bowl celebration with its “pastors” pretending to be football players and competing in preaching, complete with referees, a pig roast, commercials, and its “band going wild at halftime.”
“We’ve got jambalaya cooking out front, a pig roast, and pulled-pork sandwiches,” said Mark Stetcher, lead pastor of the Crossroads campuses in Central Kentucky. “We’ve got our own commercials and the band going wild at halftime.”
Churches across the nation typically see the lowest attendance on this Sunday. To get more people excited about coming to church, Crossroads Lexington, and 13 other Crossroads campuses in Kentucky and Ohio, decided to celebrate the Super Bowl in this way.
