Got Your Popcorn? Marcus Majestic Cinema Now Home To Church

April 1, 2011

Grab your popcorn and favorite movie candy; it’s time for church.

 

On Sunday, April 3, 2011, Life Church launches their new “West Campus” at the largest movie theater of its kind in Wisconsin, the Marcus Majestic Cinema in Brookfield. Services will be held weekly at 9:30 a.m. on Sundays, in the three-story tall Ultra-Screen auditorium.

 

Located in Germantown, Wisconsin, Life Church is the first church in the Milwaukee area to open a campus in a movie theater on such a large scale.

 

About a thousand people currently attend services at Life Church’s Germantown location. Expanding will not only allow them to reach a broader audience, but also make going to church more convenient for the members who already live in Milwaukee’s western suburbs.

 

“We are leveraging our technology to localize our church. Opening this second campus makes us more accessible to the 46,000 households located within a five-mile radius of the West Campus location,” said Life Church senior pastor, Aaron Cole.

 

Like Life Church’s Germantown location, a live band will provide energetic, contemporary worship music at the new West Campus; however, the pastor’s message will be seen via video. Childcare will be provided on site at West Campus for ages zero through fifth grade.

 

“Our main goal is to change people’s lives,” said West Campus Pastor, Jeremy Chapman. “We want to help people see church differently, and that means doing church differently.”

 

Already over 500 churches in the United States meet in movie theaters. It’s a growing national trend, not only due to the low-cost, high-impact location that the venue offers, but also due to the fact that the movie screen offers one of the most dynamic avenues for delivering the message of Jesus.
