Plenty of real-world establishments are listed as points of interest in the massively popular Pokemon Go.
Restaurants, universities, strip clubs, and even graveyards are designated as "Pokestops" in the game. Players can catch and battle Pokemon or score in-game items at these locations.
A lot of churches are marked, too — and they're taking the opportunity and running with it.
Twitter users have been sharing images of church signs embracing their newfound digital popularity. One sign tells players to "Pokemon Go pray."
Another proclaims, "Come for Pokemon, stay for Jesus."
