“Honking for Jesus” is about to begin for another season at the Mona Lutheran Church, Mona, IA. A unique musical ministry begun in 1972, it which takes place outdoors on the east lawn & parking lot of the church at 7:30 pm on designated Sunday evenings in a refurbished chicken coop. The audience sits in their cars; to show their appreciation and approval of the musical and spoken messages, they are encouraged to “honk their car horns!”
There are a variety of musical offerings including single performers, trios, quartets and blue grass fiddlers. There is something for everyone from traditional to contemporary hymns and songs. The spoken messages vary. But, the main concern is draw people to a comfortable setting for worship with an important mission and message—that of our Lord Jesus Christ! Many good friendships have been formed over the years. All denominations welcome!
The outdoor services draw folks from a wide area in southern Minnesota and northern Iowa. The focus of each service is presenting Christ’s message of hope and encouragement through music and faith stories. Some of the people attending may have problems, may be seeking help that may come to them as they listen to the phrases of a contemporary gospel song or someone’s testimony.
The services are held in early evening to attract senior citizens and others, perhaps with health problems, who may not be able to come to a morning service. Overall, the intent is to provide a worshipful experience for all in a casual, warm & friendly atmosphere. Once the service is over, all are welcome to join the sponsoring congregations of Mona and Six Mile Grove Lutheran Churches for coffee and refreshments.
