WYLAM, Ala., July 10 (UPI) -- Calling all holy rollers...

An Alabama church that has its own 12-lane-bowling alley is hosting an open house on July 12 in an effort to strike up interest.

Faith Chapel Christian Center has seven giant domes, the open house will be held in a section of the church known as The Bridge, which houses the Tuscany Lanes bowling alley.

The Bridge has been open for over a year, but Saturday's event will expose it to the community at large.

"We believe we can really meet the needs of the community," said founding Pastor Michael D. Moore. "It will bridge people from the world to the kingdom. People may not want to come to a church, but they'll come to a bowling alley. People have needs other than spiritual needs. There's a need for safe, clean, uplifting, family-oriented entertainment."

Moore founded Faith Chapel in his home more than 30 years ago.

"Now we want the world to know," Moore told AL.com. "Our church wants to be an inspiration."

The Bridge also boasts a cafe, basketball court, fitness center and playground.

"When people walk in that building, they'll be inspired, they'll be motivated," Moore said. "I want kids to walk in this facility and dream."
