Church prayer ministry opens drive-thru window.

This from Corpus Christi, TX.  South Shore Christian Church has opened a drive through prayer window that offers prayer for passers-by.

It all happens every Tuesday from 5-6 p.m. right across from McDonalds.

Here’s more:

South Shore wants it to be a low-pressure, high-comfort experience. There’s no requirement to adhere to any religion or denomination, nor to attend services. Confidentiality will be honored, Ferrell said.

The church placed banners along each street to proclaim its offerings. The majority of takers on the first two Tuesdays — the first marred by chill and rain — were current church members.

Our own people have to be comfortable with it, experience it, know that it’s safe before they’ll talk about it with other folks,” the Rev. Richard Peltz said

But some nonmembers, perhaps only seeing the banner and driven by inner turmoil, have availed themselves of the service, too. Topics have ranged from major life decisions to ill relatives.

The idea emerged from a church committee looking at ways to better serve the community and fill voids in outreach, Peltz said.

Parishioner Karen Steffy said she had envisioned a parking lot lined end to end with cars. Though churches from California to Florida have drive-thru prayer services, she didn’t remember seeing one before. The committee immediately embraced the vision, Peltz said.

Oh, and if you want communion with that?

Individual, prepackaged servings are available.
