Good Article on House Churches

Click here to read a good, if somewhat dated, article in Time Magazine about house churches.

Below is a quote from the article. Information like this ought to make us think about how we can best serve the poor and needy in our communities.

"Indeed, house churching in itself can be an economically beneficial proposition. Golden Gate Seminary's Karr reckons that building and staff consume 75% of a standard church's budget, with little left for good works. House churches can often dedicate up to 90% of their offerings. Karr notes that traditional church is fine 'if you like buildings. But I think the reason house churches are becoming more popular is that their resources are going into something more meaningful.'"
