After Gas Station Break-In, Churchgoers Rally to the Pumps

After Gas Station Break-In, Churchgoers Rally to the PumpsA BP gas station sits less than 1,000 feet away from Smoke Rise Baptist Church in Georgia. Burglars forcefully entered the station and stole cash and various items and also damaged the store. The following week Reverend Chris George shared the situation as an example in his sermon and the congregation took the message to heart. After the morning service, members of the congregation filed into the BP station, filling up their tanks and buying snacks and goods from the store. More than 150 people showed up, packing up the parking lot until no more cars could enter. Throughout the week, more came. Station owners estimates probably more than 350 churchgoers passed through the station.
