$1000 Church Easter Giveaway

An Ohio church that gave away $1,000 to fill more pews last Easter Sunday says it will do it again this year.

Lindenwald Baptist Church in Hamilton draws names to award $500 each to a member of the congregation and a guest.

Pastor Randy Moore says the southwest Ohio church had hoped for 1,000 worshippers last year, when it made the offer for the first time. It packed in 1,140—more than double the usual Sunday attendance of around 500. Moore says a crew had to direct traffic in the parking lot.

OK… let’s hear it… what do you think?  Would your church do something like this?
