    I carry at church all the time. We have a loosely organized group of 'sheepdogs' that include LEO's, ex-military, and concerned guys like me that just don't want to be sheep. The pastor is aware we're there, and glad to see us strategically positioned.

    given that church's are the newest gun-free playgrounds for lunatics, it's nice to know people pack. I know i am not the only one in my church who does. we have a 3000 person church, so that means 3000 potential targets. my pastors sidekicks all pack...i've seen 'em print before.

    it's sad though that we have to pack in church...for most, it's the safest environment that can be in.

    I am a Board member at our church and I am in charge of our security team. Our Pastor was very much in favor of CC in the church when I approached him. He informed our insurance carrier we were going to have armed securuty and I was asked to rewrite our security plan. It was voted on and adopted by our full Board. Our church actually paid for some advanced training for another Deacon and I. The congregation knows that I am in charge of security but it is not public knowledge outside of the staff, Board and security team that anyone is carrying.

    It is not legal to carry any firearm into a Church or on Church property in Utah. I dont attend Church anyway so makes no difference to me. The following was taken from the BCI website:

    The following churches have notified BCI of their intent to prohibit firearms on their premises.

    Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

    All "houses of worship" in Utah

    I carry at church (even though it's only been twice since I just got my permit) and my wife doesn't even know.

    We can't carry inside a church in our state. Oh well, maybe that's something I can pray for to get changed. I really wish they would change our law on this.

    Yes, carry. No, I've not mentioned it nor sought anyone's approval.

    I sat next to my pastor in my ccw class held at my church. Four deacons attended as well.

    I carry at church 100% of the time with the blessing of the staff. We have an armed first responders team made up of staff, members and leo's that attend in case of a psycho shooter type scenario.

    I am the Pastor and I carry every time. VA law says their must be good reason. I Pastor a store-front church, I think that's good reason.

    God Bless

    Same here, I pass by a Sheriff's Deputy every Sunday dropping the kids off in the children's building, nothing. But I have noticed that not only has my SA increased as to people and goings on but I now have started noticing smaller things. This Deputy carries a TDI just behind his spare mags, before I would have never noticed just the small portion of the handle.

    Funny story from last night, the Wife and I are sitting in the Wed. night lesson and she leans over to share her Bible with me and bumped my pistol by accident. After that she nudged it and grinned at me, then went on to start underlining the passage we were discussing.

    I carry in church and in SC you have to have the permission from someone is charge. My brother is the pastor so there was no problem. There are several people who carry in the church.
