Charlotte Church Gives Away $10,000 Worth Of Gas

CHARLOTTE — Some people trying to fill up their tanks today in Northwest Charlotte got a huge surprise.

Kingdom City Church gave away 10-thousand dollars worth of gas to people at the Mobil Gas Station on Brookshire Boulevard.  That means each car got about 30 bucks of free fuel.  The church pastor says he just wanted to help fill a need in the community.

“Evidently gas is most definitely as essential need.  Gas prices are going up right now, we just wanted to be a blessing to the community and give people as much gas as we could possibly give them,” says Pastor Brian Carn of Kingdom City Church.

Carn says the church first tried this idea in Jacksonville, Florida where another branch of the church is located.  It was a huge success, so they wanted to bring it to Charlotte.
