Free gas for attending church

Monday, July 21, 2008

I think this is a great idea. From WDAY in Fargo, ND:
Valley City, ND (WDAY TV) - These days, we could all use a little extra gas money. So what if someone told you that you might get free gas just for going to church? For the congregational at United Church of Christ in Valley City, summer has always meant less people filling the pews. But today attendance was good. In fact, the number of people who attended services in June nearly doubled since last year. A possible reason is free gas cards.

Starting last month, peg and other church goers get a ticket for every service they attend; before they leave they drop it in to a bucket. At the end of each month, one ticket is drawn and the lucky winner gets a $50 gas card.

Some have criticized the new program, saying its bribery, but Peg says if it fills the pews and people's gas tanks, she thinks its program that should stick around.
