PotomacLocal.com Cross Post: Comedian Sunday

Move over pastor, the comedian is coming to the pulpit.
“Of course God has a sense of humor” quipped Pastor Matt Meisenhelter, “just look at me.” Standing as tall and broad as any NFL linebacker, but with a face more like a teddy bear, Meisenhelter is the leader of the new Spirit and Life Church in Montclair, which currently meets at Forest Park High School. This Sunday, however, “Pastor Matt” will be stepping down and letting Comedian Ron McGehee take the mic. McGehee was a semi-finalist on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” and has also appeared on Comedy Central and written for Jimmy Kimmel, but his humor on Sunday will have a decidedly Christian twist.
Meisenhelter said the idea came from the church’s mission of reaching people who may be disillusioned with faith. “Doing the same thing over and over again while expecting different results is the definition of insanity…we’re not afraid to try things differently in hopes of some positive results for God.”
The event is free and open to the public this Sunday at 10 a.m. at Forest Park High School, 15721 Forest Park Drive, in Woodbridge. Children will have the option to enjoy a Christian Illusionist during the program and afterward, at 11 a.m., there will be a moonbounce and other children’s activities available.
Meisenhelter says there’s no need to know anything about church or to get all fancy. “Come as you are, I’ll be in jeans- just come dressed, please”, he joked.
