Easton Church Declares On Sign That It Is A Pokestop

EASTON (CBS) -- It seems everyone's playing Pokemon Go lately--even Pastor Sharon Hughes.

Hughes, the pastor at Easton's Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, recently found out the church was a Pokestop--a place where players can go to collect items like Pokeballs for their digital creatures--so she decided the sign in front of the building should let players know.

She told WBZ that she changed the sign last Tuesday, after she noticed three pre-teen boys in the church last week playing the game. They told her they were training their Pokemon.

The stops have become popular gathering spots in the game, as well as in real life.

The pastor eventually downloaded the app and played along with the boys, who taught her how to use the church's Pokestop.
