Church Of The Open Wallet?

Recently our church had an event called "the whole church goes out to eat."

No we didn't all go to the same restaurant, there are several thousand of us.

Everyone was given a business card, instructed to go out to eat and to leave a generous (30-40%) tip. We were given a business card with the text:

"Here's a little something
extra. We hope this
brightens your day - no strings
attached. We just want you to
know that God loves you and
cares about you."

Please let us know if there is
anything we can do for you.

On the back was the church name, address, phone number, web site, and a schedule of services.

Well today one of the pastors told that several of the youth had been doing some cleaning work at the church and ordered pizza delivered. The check was around $70 and they pitched in $10 each for a tip of around $130!

It wasn't my store because we don't deliver to that side of town, but I was certainly a little jealous!
