City targets storefront churches
CLOVER — Some leaders in this Bible Belt town are saying they’ve had enough of storefront churches popping up downtown and are pushing an ordinance to stop new churches from opening and keep others from expanding.

The town manager here says the churches don’t do much to help breathe life into the town six days a week.

“Storefront churches only generate foot traffic for a few hours on Sunday,” town manager Scott Moulder said.

The intent isn’t geared to restricting churches as much as it is to attracting a variety of businesses, Moulder said ...

"But about that time, serious trouble developed in Ephesus concerning the Way.

It began with Demetrius, a silversmith who had a large business manufacturing silver shrines of the Greek goddess Artemis. He kept many craftsmen busy. He called the craftsmen together, along with others employed in related trades, and addressed them as follows:

'Gentlemen, you know that our wealth comes from this business. As you have seen and heard, this man Paul has persuaded many people that handmade gods aren't gods at all. And this is happening not only here in Ephesus but throughout the entire province! Of course, I'm not just talking about the loss of public respect for our business. I'm also concerned that the temple of the great goddess Artemis will lose its influence and that Artemis--this magnificent goddess worshiped throughout the province of Asia and all around the world--will be robbed of her prestige!'

At this their anger boiled, and they began shouting, 'Great is Artemis of the Ephesians!'"

~~Acts 19:23-28

Wonder is the mayor has considered the impact of storefront churches, if they are doing their job & calling, on the positive work toward reducing crime & the uplifting of morals, mores & lawkeeping in his or her community??
The more people who come truly to Christ, will change a community...OR is that the reason the mayor does not want storefront churches??
