PICKERINGTON, Ohio -

An Ohio church congregation ordered a pizza from Domino's during a service, then tipped the driver more than $1,000 that had been collected for the offering.

The driver, who introduced herself as Natasha, brought the $5.99 pizza to Sycamore Creek Church in Pickerington in suburban Columbus on October 4. The Rev. Steve Markle brought her onstage and asked her the biggest tip she'd ever received. She said about $10.

That's when Markle told her the teaching at the church had been about generosity so the congregation had taken up an offering for the driver. Natasha broke into tears. 

"It can help a lot," Natasha said, crying. "Thank you so much."

The Columbus Dispatch reports that the congregation was wrapping up a sermon series on "I was Broke. Now I'm Not." The church draws about 500 to 600 people each week.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
