Strip Mall Churches

A picture blog celebrating churches found in strip malls


Genesis African Methodist Episcopal

This was the 2nd church in the same strip mall as the Church of Christ. It was next door to the Tokyo Spa so if the preacher stresses you out you can get some good rest and relaxation. Nearby, there is also a place to have signs made or buy a motorcycle.


Church of Christ

The Church of Christ sign just states the “Church Of Christ Meets Here.”  For me, I like the notion of just meeting somewhere and praying.  It somehow conveys the fact that the location doesn’t matter so much.  The sign is almost like self-deprecating humor.  I find that refreshing in a strip mall church.


Marina Shopping Plaza – Fairfield Suisun Christian Center

I would have been bored with this place, but I was still in disbelief that we had come upon the 4th strip mall church in the Marina Shopping Center.  Still, eventually the novelty of discovering the 4th strip mall church in the shopping plaza wore off and I discovered pizza and a place to register as a Republican.  Of course, if you are already registered as a Republican you can just volunteer.


Marina Shopping Plaza – Cornerstone Gospel Foursquare Church

Cornerstone Gospel Foursquare Church

Any church with the words “Gospel” and “Foursquare” seems like fun.  Still, as we came up on this 3rd strip mall church in the Marina Shopping Center I was little worried.  There were a bunch of guys on motorcycles that were looking at us suspiciously and all I could think of was this episode of South Park where they start calling all the guys on their loud motorcycles “fags”.

Anyways, for your post strip mall church going pleasure, apparently you can volunteer at Meals on Wheels or the Fraternal Order of Eagles.  Also, you can get your car fixed at GT Motors and learn how to defend yourself with Aikido.  Good times!
