If you want to worship at this church, you better have your money first. A Tampa, Fl. ministry threatened to revoke a woman’s membership for failure to pay $1,000 annually.
Greater Mt. Moriah Primitive Baptist Church sent a letter to Candace Petterson that sent her looking for a new church home.
WFTS-TV first reported on the shocking story.
“You are currently delinquent in your financial support,” reads the notice sent on the official ministry letterhead. “Anytime a member fails to contribute the minimum assessed amount for three or more months in the year, become a delinquent member.”
Petterson was stunned by what she was reading. The single mother had attended Mt. Moriah and was pleased to do so since it was close to her new home.
“People were really friendly there, and I really enjoyed being there,” said Petterson.
Church members, according to the letter, are required to pay a minimum of $50 per month. Plus, a fee for what’s called “Mt. Moriah Day” is $150 and the assessment for the church’s anniversary is $250.
