An unlikely venue for a church service: the local bar
St. Paul, Minn. — Chris Fletcher is training to be a minister. Despite losing his construction job recently, he managed to stick it out at Bethel University for a bachelor's degree and he's going back this fall for a master's in Christian ministry.
But he's already leading a congregation...of sorts.
This Sunday, Fletcher will gather a group of pals at Dunnigan's Pub & Grub in Two Harbors for the second installment of "Bar Church".
It's an informal religious service in the local bar that's attracting people who weren't so comfortable in traditional churches.
