Conspicuous consumption in the name of the Lord!

I have heard of many gimmicks to improve church attendance but this wee gem from America is a beauty; In the Congregational United church, Valley City N.D. church attendance gets you free entry in a raffle where the prize in $50 voucher for petrol (or gas at they would say over the pond!). I always knew that gas was viewed as precious in American eyes but something to draw you closer to God was one that I had not seen coming...I guess they will not be joining the Eco Church movement just quite yet!
