Faith in Action: Playoff pastor

- One Largo church is putting a playful spin on the playoffs. Our Savior Lutheran Church Pastor Tyler Moore is a die-hard Bolts fan. He's spreading that love on his church's sign, right on East Bay Drive.

You may remember him from last year, when he started the fun tradition. Each gameday, he puts his witty spin on a Bible verse to cheer on the Bolts.

As you can imagine, after a whole season of the signs, he was fresh out of ideas this go-round.

"I actually said, I don't have enough ideas to keep doing this! There was so much backlash, people commenting on Twitter, 'No, you have to! This is a tradition!' I had to get back to the grind and start thinking of some more. So I'm at 16 signs now," Pastor Moore smiled.

Moore says the signs have actually increased their interest and numbers at church. Their online streaming church service actually crashed last year due to the number of people logging in.
