U.S. Churches Support Families amid Increasing Gas Prices

Amid the increase in gas prices in the United States of America, churches in the country have decided to support some families in need.

Family Life Christian Centre in Clinton, Iowa, hosted an event aimed at giving out free food and other prizes to its members. Also, attendees were opportune to win a $100 gas card.

According to the Senior Pastor of the church, Kenny Hilliard Jr., said that the reason for the event was because gas is high and the incentive is to encourage people in the community to turn up for the event.

He said in a Facebook post, “I want you to know that we will be offering $100 gas gift cards to those who come to the services. A part of it will have a drawing and you can win $100 on Family Life Christian Church. 

In an interview with The Christian Post, Hilliard gave more reasons for giving out gas cards in the church event.

He said, “There was a little concern with people that travel to our church. They said that the gas price is going up.

“What we wanted to do is, we want to give back not only to the ones that are in our church, but we wanted to give to the ones in our community as well because that’s ultimately what we are here for. We are here to help the community in any kind of way we can.”

Similarly, Life Changers Christian Church in West Allis, Wisconsin, gave out $900 worth of gas by parsing out $15 worth of the precious commodity to each motorist, in early June. 

While speaking on the reason for the church’s action, its leader, Pastor Jay, told WISN that it is the present need of the people.

He said, "That's the need right now. People have to get to work, they have to get their children around. For some people, that $15 goes a long way."
