Church sends this member a collection notice from church she attends and a threat!

Candace Petterson, of Tampa, Florida told ABC Action News her church says she must pay more than $1,000 a year in donations or she wouldn’t be considered a member.

“People were really friendly there, and I really enjoyed being there,” said Petterson.

She said finding the Greater Mount Moriah Primitive Baptist Church was a blessing. The single mother had been looking for a church closer to her new home and six months in, things were going perfectly. That is, until she received an odd letter at her home last week.

“To be a member in good standing and have the right to vote, adults are to contribute the minimum amount of $50 per month,” read Petterson.

To her surprise it was from the church stating she was delinquent in her financial support and sent her a collection notice.

“Fifty dollars per month, now this shocked me because I haven’t heard about the $50 per month.  So where did this come from?” asked Petterson. “Then Mount Moriah day is on there, $150.”

The letter goes on to tell Petterson along with those two charges, she would also be on the hook for a yearly church anniversary fee of $250– a total of $1,000 in required donations a year. Petterson says she was told one of the fees is to help pay off debt held by the church.
