Church Congregation Surprises Waffle House Staff With $3500 Tip On Christmas Eve
Members of Grand Lake United Methodist Church in Celina, Ohio were so moved by their Christmas Eve sermon that they did something incredible. Just watch this amazing video that showcases pieces from the pastor’s touching speech. After the sermon about generosity, the congregation decided to bring his words to life. Together, they took up an offering and then several dozen churchgoers drove to the local Waffle House. There were five women working at the Wapakoneta restaurant and you can tell that there were overcome with emotion at the scene. And when they finally realize that they will be splitting $3500 in tip money, they are overjoyed. These waitresses weren’t able to be with their family on Christmas Eve, so this gift meant so much to them. And it speaks volumes about this church and the congregation. What an amazing way to bring the kindness of Jesus to life and spread His powerful message. I’m sure this is a moment these women will never forget. I’m so glad they caught it all on camera!
