BROKEN ARROW, OK -- Connection Church in Broken Arrow gave away cash on Sunday in its version of stimulus money, but it's not what you think.

The church gave away money to each family present, but the catch was that the families must give the money to someone in need.

"The economy has done one thing for us and that's helped us see that there are people in need. People lose their jobs. People have had their salaries cut back and even organizations, charitable organizations, are not getting the donations that they have been getting. So it's just a great way for us, we believe as Christ's followers, to do what God called us to do and that's help other people," said Pastor Brad Farnsworth, Connection Church.

The church said it hoped the experiment taught its members about how important it is to give back.
