No Church on Christmas?

MEMPHIS - As you know, Christmas falls on a Sunday this year. It's the first time that's happened since 1994. Many churches across the country are canceling services. The idea is, with other services in the days before Christmas, having no church on Christmas Day allows folks to spend more time with their families.
World Overcomers Outreach Ministries Church on Winchester is among the churches that will not have services on Christmas. The church's pastor was not available for comment Wednesday.
World Overcomers is not alone. Do a quick search on the internet, and you'll quickly discover lots of Christians will be celebrating Christ's birth from home this year. Some of the biggest mega-churches in the country will be closed on Christmas. They include; The Chicago area's largest congregation, Willow Creek Community Church, Mars Hill Bible Church in Michigan, and North Point Church in Georgia.

You can't type with a cat on your lap... frequent worshipper points is one way to go but why not go back to selling pews? That might bring folks to church. If they pay for it they will probably want to use it!
