Strip Mall Churches

Alright, so it might be a little soon to be including buildings that are not strip mall churches on a site dedicated to strip mall churches.  Still, the United Methodist Center’s corporate looking headquarters fit in well with the theme of the site.  Though to be fair, this place had a fairly traditional looking church next door.

This place in San Diego was a favorite. A giant sign so you don’t get lost with all your post church going needs. A hair salon nearby. Domino’s right next door. Jack in the Box in the same shopping plaza. Kindly located near a vet so you can say a prayer for Fluffy or Mittens. And if you get to church early, you get primo parking.

This was the second strip mall church that was in the same shopping plaza as The Father’s House.  Why two strip mall churches in one strip mall?  There are many answers.  For me, the likely answer has something to do with the pho restaurant that is located about 30 steps closer to this one. Pho is delicious!

This church in Vacaville, CA was the inspiration for this blog complete with its own bus and upfront parking for first time visitors.  It was next door to Salon Philosophie if you need a haircut after.  They seem to like putting hair salons and strip mall churches next to each other.  Lastly, if you are in the market for a new car you can walk on over to the Vacaville Ford dealership.
