14 Strange Names for Churches
By Anna Dembowski They say laughter is good medicine, and maybe that’s why some places have chosen to embrace their names rather than rebuff the stares they receive. Churches are no exception. Some may argue the name of a church does not matter, but nondenominational churches -- and churches who don’t mention their affiliation -– are on the rise. The name of a church, then, might have a whole lot to do with who it attracts. The stranger the name, the more eyes it draws, and the more people that visit -- a pastor can only pray. Some strange names are courtesy of the church's location. For others, the names stem from the church's affiliation. And for the rest, the names are just too strange to reason with.
