California church members show faith with tattoos
ANAHEIM, Calif. — Church logo tattoos are the latest in offbeat testimony at an Orange County church that holds Sunday services in a punk rock nightclub and collects offerings in KFC buckets. City Church of Anaheim is celebrating its first year in operation and the goal of reaching a 200-member flock with a radical commitment to the congregation and community: Tattoos of the red-heart church logo.
Pastor Kyle Steven Bonenberger told worshippers that God “tattooed your name on his heart” and it was time for an everlasting commitment to Him and the church.
The Orange County Register reported about a dozen people got inked, fulfilling the pledge they made if the church doubled its normal attendance.
City Church started in a living room and moved to Anaheim’s Chain Reaction Club as the congregation grew.
