Families across Metro Detroit have felt pain at the pump, yet a gas station in Detroit was bumper to bumper Saturday morning.

Several Detroit and Inkster pastors volunteered their time and were helping people pay for gas in honor of Easter weekend.

“Everybody knows gas prices are outrageous, so because of the crisis, we decided as Christians we wanted to respond Christianly,” said Pastor Clifford Clark from Redeeming Love Church.

Area churches have raised $6,000, giving every driver 10 gallons of gas.

“It’s not just giving gas. It’s more than that because we’ve been called to reach out to the world,” said Sherline Smith, a church volunteer.

Worries about the economy including the cost of groceries and gas have so many grateful for some help this holiday weekend.

“For us, it’s the opportunity to be the hands and feet of Christ in this community to let them know we see and hear you and want to respond to it,” said Clark.
