GALVESTON — A Galveston County church is dangling a couple of motorized carrots to increase its congregation.
Abundant Life Christian Center in La Marque will give away a new Chrysler PT Cruiser to a woman and a Harley Davidson Sportster to a man at its New Year’s Eve service.
Parishioners and visitors have been eligible to enter for the free drawings each time they attended a service in recent weeks, and members who brought visitors could enter twice.
The church purchased the vehicles. The winners must be at Wednesday’s service to drive them away.
“This is an opportunity to give something to someone that will encourage people to come to the house of the Lord,” Pastor Walter Hallam told the Galveston County Daily News in Sunday’s editions. “We want to do something to have a positive effect on people’s lives.”
At first this might seem not to be appropriate. Yet it is Bible based if the car was a Jesus Chrysler. And of course Davidson was Solomon.
