AUSTIN (KXAN) – City Community Church is a place where everyone is welcome at Sunday service, including four-legged friends.
The church meets at the La Zona Rosa bar on Fourth Street in Downtown Austin every Sunday morning. It is a heavenly haven for people and their pets.
“That’s part of our philosophy,” said Robby Forsythe, City Community Church Pastor. “We want to be a blessing. Everyone is welcome. We decided people can bring their dogs too.”
The Canine Christ Connection started when church members began handing out snacks and dog treats to joggers and their pets on Sunday mornings. Then those pet owners started asking if they could bring their dogs to service.
