A church in Texas is now offering spiritual guidance for people on the go. El Alfarero Church was inspired by the fast food industry to launch a drive-thru prayer option.
El Alfarera Pastor John Lopez said, "It's so unique in this fast world that we live in today. Look at your drive-through restaurants. Their windows are packed every day."
The church is using its unique prayer system to be more engaged with the community
"If you need prayer, no matter what background you are, we all need a prayer, we all need someone to pray with us, and that's what it's for," said El Alfarero co-pastor Danny Quintanilla.
Eric Soto used the prayer drive-thru and said that it was a better use of his time than spending two minutes to grab some fast food.
"This is more than better than that. You're feeding your soul,” Soto said.
Volunteers from the church man the drive-thru window all day during week days and on select weekends.
