KOCHVILLE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A Michigan church is hoping that excitement over Star Wars can help draw more people to its congregation this holiday season.

The Saginaw News reports (https://bit.ly/21xDv5h ) Life Church in Saginaw County’s Kochville Township is offering “A Star Wars Christmas” promotion that continues on Sunday. There’s a create-your-own lightsaber activity, free photos with a Stormtrooper and Star Wars merchandise giveaways for kids.

Life Church, located about 80 miles northwest of Detroit, also is giving away 300 tickets to see “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” when it opens later this month.

The Rev. Jonathan Herron, a Star Wars fan himself, started the nondenominational Christian church about three years ago. He’s used contemporary music and comedy as part of efforts to attract the under-40 demographic, so he says the latest promotion makes sense.
