A Baconton church gives a free car away to one its members.

The pastor at St. James Missionary Baptist Church gave Ardell Barber the keys to a Dodge Intrepid during their service Sunday morning. Barber is from Albany and has been paying her nephew $15 a week for gas money to help take her to work. She also drives the church van. Barber says she loves the car.

"I thank God, I thank my family, my church family,” said Ardell Barber, Car Recipient. “God has been so good to me."

"It's all because of God's grace and mercy that he allows us to continue to do these things,” said Pastor Lawrence Knighton.

This is the third car giveaway the church has done this year with the help from anonymous donors. Their next car giveaway is on Christmas Day.
