Church set to give away petrol and prayers on Good Friday

by Eno Adeogun

Executive Pastor Donna Williams from the Greater St Stephen Full Gospel Baptist in New Orleans told The Christian Post: "We do this as a way of giving back to the community.

"This is the second year that we will be doing it. We call it [the] Greater Good Friday Gas Giveaway."


The first 250 people to turn up at Sterling Express station and the Gentilly-Paris Shell from 9am until 11am will receive the gift.

"We plan to service 250 people and we have two different gas stations that they give the gas away, so once we reach the amount that we expect to giveaway then unfortunately we just have to turn some people away," Williams said.


Once 250 people have been served, the church will also offer prayers and an invitation to join them for their service on Easter Sunday.

When the church first held the event last year, Williams said they were able to invite many people to church and about 20 per cent of them showed up for the service the following Sunday.
