'Instant churches' convert public schools to worship spaces
Praise the Lord and pass the crates with the pre-fab pulpit and the portable baptistery inside. The Forest Hills Community Church is moving into P.S. 144 — sort of.

Every Sunday morning, the elementary school in Queens, like dozens more schools in New York City and thousands more nationwide, is transformed into a house of worship for a few hours.

There's no tally of how many churches, synagogues and mosques convert public school spaces into prayer places for the nominal cost of permits and promises to make no permanent changes in the school setting. What's clear is that there has been a steady rise in numbers as congregations find schools are available, affordable and accessible to families they want to reach. ...

Critics, including some courts, are concerned that these arrangements are an unconstitutional entanglement of church and state.

It might help the Jewish folk out also, since schools probably aren't used too much on Saturday either. But not all that worship on Sunday can be considered orthodox Christian, This story is about an Assembly of God church, does one ask them, Are Experiences a Valid Form of Truth?
