LITTLE ROCK Ark. (KTHV)--One Little Rock church is using a unique approach to get more people coming to services. Second Baptist church says we all need Jesus and we all need gas. So they are offering their guests gas cards.
They've spent thousands of dollars on gas cards and they are giving them out to help members in the John Barrow community. Second Baptist church has two locations in Little Rock and combined they have nearly 5,000 members. But, they still want to reach out to people in their community.
Sunday morning they gave out more than 500 gas cards to guests, trying to meet some needs. Laterri Porter says the church started giving away gas cards the first Sunday in July. They plan to give away free gas every Sunday this month. Each gas card is worth $10 to $20.
