ABILENE, Texas—A church in Texas is letting you get your prayer and party on at the same time. The house of worship in Abilene doesn’t look like a typical church because it is actually a bar.

Church leaders traded crosses and pews for pool tables and bar stools. They say they wanted to make it easy for anyone to join the prayer party.

“This is what it’s all about. They’ve been told they’re going to hell. They’ve been told it’s all a lie, but they haven’t been told how much Jesus loves them,” said Ken Jones, Southern Hills Church of Christ.

The alcohol is not served until after the service, and leaders say they keep the sermons short.
