(AP) Can a church located on a fishing lake reel in worshippers who might not attend a more traditional service? An Indiana pastor says yes.


Rev. Wade Compton is a senior pastor at Bradley United Methodist Church in Greenfield, Ind. He says holding summer services on a well-stocked 10-acre fishing lake is putting new congregants at ease and making them more receptive to his sermons and gospel readings. The sanctuary is a former bait shop, and attendees get two hours of free catch and release fishing.


Compton is hoping fishing enthusiasts attracted to his outdoor church will come to his limestone church after the season ends.
