BELOIT – Would having your pet by your side make you more comfortable at church?
Gridley Congregational Church, 1101 Partridge Ave., is inviting people and their (friendly) pets to services on the last Sunday of each month at 10 a.m. The first animal-friendly service will be Jan. 28. Pets should preferably be on a leash, or in a cage if necessary.
Pastor Jerry Thomas, wife Cindy and minister-in-training Sean Williams want everyone to know they love animals and so does God. Pets have a soul and are great companions.
