NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A Nashville church located in an old bank offered drive-thru prayers from the teller windows on Good Friday.
North Pointe Community Church Pastor David Thompson told The Tennessean the idea was to offer something to the community for free that shows the love of God.
Several of the 100-plus church members manned the drive-thru in shifts. Prayer requests were accepted at the first teller window, and the volunteers would pray with those dropping off the requests, if that was desired.
At the second teller window, they handed out a handwritten blessing and business cards with the church's address, service times and phone number.
They advertised the service through social media and word of mouth.
Thompson's hope was to reach non-churchgoers. He said he would like to hold the event annually.
