New Beginnings Community Church gave away gas for 334 cars on Good Friday. Cars lined up on Idlewild Road and Margaret Wallace Road for $15 in gas at the corner Sonoco. In all, the church spent $5160 in gas. It also gave away free water and popcorn. Funding was provided by the church and its members.
The gas event’s brainchild, senior pastor Michael Henderson, was out of town, but his wife and church executive minister, Twanna Henderson, was present. She is affectionately referred to as First Lady.
