Mars Hill already attracting local members

Mars Hill Spokane won’t officially launch until early next year, but about 60 people from Spokane and North Idaho have already committed to becoming members of the Seattle-based megachurch.

They’ll be taking over the First Covenant Church building, at 212 S. Division, and the congregation currently meeting there will move to the Garland District.

Mars Hill made an offer to buy the First Covenant building in November. The Seattle-based church is known for its rapid expansion, high-tech outreach and its sometimes-controversial pastor, Mark Driscoll.

Miles Rohde, pastor of Mars Hill Spokane, said the church mostly plans to keep the historic building as is, with the addition of a children’s area inside. Full story. Tracy Simmons, special to the SR

If you are a churchgoer what size church is most comfortable for you; small, medium, large or mega?
