What’s in the Box?


Can you believe this? Let’s make a deal for Jesus? Something about this just doesn’t sit right with me …




If a lucky — or “blessed and highly favored” — churchgoer is in the right seat, they can also receive a cash prize.At each of the three Sunday services, the Rev. Dan Willis pulls a number of one seat from a bag and the worshiper in that seat wins a cash prize. Two of the churchgoers win $250 and the third gets $500. The church gives away $1,000 each Sunday, Willis said.

The cash prize is part of Willis’ recent focus on helping his congregation pay bills and begin a debt-free life, he said.


Ummmmm … Any thoughts?
