Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition - Churches Offering CC Classes
Excerpted from The Daily: — Salvation isn’t automatic — but it might be semiautomatic.

In an effort to increase membership, a number of U.S. churches — including the Church of Christ congregation in this rural village 30 miles north of Columbus — are offering an unconventional public service: Concealed weapons training.

“Church has done a good job with coffee klatsches or whatever, but we haven’t really reached out to guys,” said Jeff Copley, a preacher at the church. “And guys in Morrow Country, they shoot and they hunt.”

Hundreds of students have enrolled in the 10-hour course, which meets the state requirements for earning a concealed weapons permit. The training includes two hours on a church member’s private shooting range.

“I grew up going to church, but hadn’t attended in a number of years,” said David Freeman, 52, a local engineering manager who attended a firearm safety class at the church. “Always considered myself a Christian. I came for the gun classes and have been coming back for two years.”

My church had a little get-together one Saturday to teach the kids proper gun handling. We had a bunch of .22LR rifles and handguns there. It was an awesome time! We then had a gathering a few weeks later for the adults to play with the bigger toys.

Our only problem? Figuring out what to call it...haha.

- Bibles and bullets?
- God and guns?
- Scripture and shooting?

Both events were quite enjoyable. Well worth the time.
I think all of these gatherings are very cool. Good for those churches.
das, proud to be a member of since Sep 2012.
LOVE this idea, and I am not what many would call a religious person.

Years ago we had a "young" preacher at our church. He carried a snubnose 38 everywhere he went. He hunted religiously (sorry, couldn't resist the pun). He bought one of the M1's that were sale and shot the living daylights out of it. Him, my dad and I spent hours at the range together shooting.

He showed me that you can be a religious person, and still stand up for yourself.

Slap him and he would turn the other cheek. But mess with his family or go a bit further and put him and his in danger, and you were going to have your hands full dealing with him.
