On March 4, 2001, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that "the Playhouse Theater in Camp Snoopy in the heart of the Mall of America is...going to be the home of the River Church," which is affiliated with the Baptist General Conference. "The church is allowed to have hosts in the mall to help direct people to the Camp Snoopy sanctuary. But the hosts are not to evangelize...Still, [the Rev. Chris] Reinertson said he hopes that people who have come to the mall to shop will happen upon the church in the 500-seat theater at Camp Snoopy."
