A fledging Arkansas church will see if distilled spirits can mix with the Holy Spirit this Easter weekend.

A new Little Rock church called The River will hold both of its Easter services at The Rev Room, a bar and nightclub in the city's River Market.

Pastor Shane Montgomery said that it's an effort to attract a new audience to his nondenominational ministry.

However, bar employees say it's not yet clear if their liquor license will allow them to serve beer and booze during a Sunday morning service.

The church says it would also like to hold Mother's Day and Father's Day services at a bar.
