Salem church uses a zombie theme to keep faith alive
“We sometimes turn to pop culture when we’re looking for ways to teach people how to practically apply their faith in their own lives,” said Gregg DiCecca, one of the church’s several pastors. “And it just so happens we have some hardcore Walking Dead fans serving on our staff right now.”
Things have changed quite a bit since then, lead pastor Anthony Milas said, noting that the church has expanded its offerings well beyond the Salem community.
Church staff is currently producing the videos onsite in the media studio at the Salem church headquarters.
Milas added that, “while the Bible has a message that can transform lives, that message won’t reach people unless they’re interested in hearing it.”
Similar themes will continue in the weeks to follow, with the programs, “Zombie Outbreak: Hope is the Antidote,” “How to Service an Attack,” and “From Death to Life,” with the program finale, “Safe Haven: Follow me if you want to live,” taking place the first weekend in November.
“What can we say, we love candy around here,” Milas said. “Church should never be boring.”
Salem services take place Saturday afternoons at 4 p.m. and on Sundays at 8:45 a.m., 10 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. Londonderry’s Sunday services take place at 9:30 a.m.
