Been a while since I’ve been to a drive-in theatre and I’ve never been to one in the daytime but we had drive-in worship this morning. It was novel. Pretty good.
I commend my pastor and staff for setting up this addition to live streaming a sermon. The design of our building is such that several rows of parking spaces face the elevated front entrance to the church. We had music and preaching on an FM station. I don’t know how this works.
The fire marshall was present to be sure no one rolled down their windows. I guess this was a precondition. I may get churched for rolling mine down. I did get scolded.
The service was shorter. The preaching was a bit more vigorous but brief. There was a box with a slot window high at the exit for offering envelopes.
My understanding is that we’re not going to do this weekly. Staff fatigue figures into it, I think. They’ve added a lot of virtual stuff.
It was a good experience even though we could only wave at each other.
What’s your experience?
Saw GWTW for the first time as a kid at one of the two local drive-in theaters. Shopping center there now.
