MyLameSexLife.Com: Not your typical local church billboard ad!

Here is a good way to start your Valentines Day!

www.mylamesexlife.com

These guys at Granger Community Church sure know how to turn heads and reach into people’s hearts.  I am not surprised at this (especially after learning of the PornSunday.com stuff some friends of mine have done at their church).  Yes, sure this is for evangelism and to get people in the door and provide them truth.  Sure, this is a truly heartfelt endeavor on a topic that has been taboo in church for far too long.  Yada yada…  The thing that gets me is that these guys seem like they are having TOO MUCH FUN doing ministry.  And, I’m jealous (a bit).  Here is what Mark Waltz posted about what his church is doing.

LamesexlifejpgBuzz Billboard…Sex and Church

Yeah, that’s our billboard. Yeah, the one that reads, mylamesexlife.com. Yeah, the web address really works.

And yes, this billboard (one of four around the area) is in the Hooters parking lot. Evangelism at Granger Community Church.

Why? ‘Cause people matter. People who have real needs; people who want real love. And, yes, people who want good sex.

God created this wonder, intended for men and women within the life commitment of marriage. Great, fulfilling, mind-blowing, life-enriching sex.

God’s idea.

We’re hoping our friends in the greater Michiana area will log on… and find the invitation intriguing enough to show up at a weekend service. People really matter to us at Granger Community Church.

  1. Interesting… Here in Austin, Lake Hills Church did something similar, putting up a big yellow billboard with only the web address “www.mylamemarriage.com”. I had not visited the site (hey, I like my marriage), but after reading this, I checked it out and sure enough, it linked to Lake Hills Church, specifically a sermon series on marriage — a six weekend “honest, frank discussion of the challenges confronting every husband and wife.” What a great idea!

  5. Rich,
    Came across some comments of yours on some guys blog in Kentucky. Thanks for the words and the words of defense. Amazing…that guy lumped me in with white supremacists, though I saw he clarified his views. And he accussed me of being an open theist because of my position on Piper. Wow! I hardly think that open theists would want me in their camp….Can’t God still be sovereign, yet not be the creator or designer of Piper’s cancer? I wish I would have been more careful in my tone on that blog….but people sure do take words out of context…..

    But thanks for having that guy clarify how he lumps people in….

    Nice billboard by the way…

  9. I don’t know. Maybe it’s because I’m naturally modest in this way, prudish even. I blush at this sort of thing, alright?Well, I haven’t been a Christian for too long so I haven’t forgotten what it was like not to be one. So viewing this billboard with my “pre-Christ days” mindset, I would have thought, “Great, another sales pitch to get me to come ‘check out cool music’ and while I’m at it get a Bible.” These sort of tactics didn’t work with me (though God can work with anything) to get me to go to church. I always felt like I was being marketed to, like I was a target audience and someone was desperately trying to pump their numbers. I know there is a big push in the church right now for cultural relevance, but isn’t Jesus enough? Please don’t think I’m writing this with judmentalness- I really wanna know. Are we sacrificing the Gospel message in an effort to get the message across?
