(WOFL FOX 35, Orlando) — Fed up with the high gas prices? A central Florida church says it wants to bless you by giving you a discount on gas.
For a few hours on Saturday the members of the New Spring Church will pay $.50 cents of every gallon sold at the 7-11 on Red Bug Lake Road.
It’s certainly a smart way for their new church to get its name out but Kirt Henman, pastor of New Spring Church says it’s not the main reason why they’re doing this.
“For the two hours on Saturday people will come, whether they know we’re having this gas buy-down or not,” Henman said. “You know they may just be coming to 7-11. There is no catch. We simply want to show the love of Jesus Christ in a positive way. There’s no bait and switch. There’s no catch whatsoever.”
And Henman says there’s no lecturing, either.
“Nope, no preaching,” he said. “We’re just here to serve the community. We’re just here to pump the gas and wash the windshield, that’s it!”
