Kickin' It Up A Notch: German Churches To Show World Cup Games

SoccerToday, I came across a very cool article on ESPN today about how a number of German churches are looking to appeal to soccer fans by showing World Cup games in their buildings. Not only that, but the churches in communities where games are being held will be holding services in the languages of the countries playing there that day. Talk about trying to appeal to the masses.

While the article does raise some concerns being made by observers, the general idea is a great way to get people in the door. Once people come and find a friendly environment, they are more likely to come back and hear what you have to say about God. As always, any good relationship is built upon a solid friendship. And if that friendship is built upon soccer, then there is nothing wrong with that.

Maybe it's something we could try with Steelers games at our church in the fall…
