Driving up church attendance

Even Shepherd of the Bay Lutheran Church Pastor Jim Honig is shocked to see the parking lot full for service some Sundays. The Ellison Bay congregation is one of several area churches that have taken advantage of technology to let their members experience services together in a drive-in style format. Shepherd of the Bay Lutheran Church has been doing drive-in services since the summer, seeing their attendance top the century mark a few times during that period. As much as he wishes his congregation could sing and pray in their sanctuary, Honig is just happy they attend what some call “beep beep” church together.

Honig says they will keep doing their drive-in services rain, snow, or shine until it is safe to come inside, including this year’s Christmas Eve and Christmas Day services.
