Churchgoers given $500 to 'do good'

Pastor Laura Truax shocked people at LaSalle Street Church when she announced she was going to share out part of $1.6 million made in a real estate deal.

The money, $500 each, was shared between 320 regular attendees.

Speaking to the Associated Press Pastor Truax said: "I hoped that they would recognize the power they had to bless others and change somebody's life and that has largely happened."

One woman gave the money to her granddaughter to help pay for student fees, another gave his cash to help build a skate part for children whilst one woman is giving it to a scholarship fund for immigrants.

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
