CAMBRIDGE — A drive in church service at Great Marsh hosted by a Cambridge pastor garnered national attention when a photograph taken during the service appeared on the front page of the Wall Street Journal.
The photo, which also appeared in the Irish Times, was taken by Jim Watson of AFP/Getty, and shows a worshipper atop an SUV parked at the service, with the Choptank River in the background.
Local pastor Abraham Lankford announced on Friday that he will conduct at least four weeks of drive in church every Sunday morning at 11 a.m. starting Sunday, March 22 at Gerry Boyle Park at Great Marsh Park in Cambridge.
Lankford, who leads Jesus' Church on Leonards Lane in Cambridge, said that he heard estimates of 225-250 people attended the first open-air service.
Editor's note: Dorchester Star reporter Mike Detmer was the first to report on the novel idea proposed by Pastor Adam Lankford.
