PICKERINGTON, Ohio (AP) -- A suburban Columbus church congregation ordered a pizza from Domino's during a service, then tipped driver more than $1,000 that had been collected for the offering.

The driver, who said her name was Natasha, brought the $5.99 pizza to the Sycamore Creek Church in Pickerington on Oct. 4. 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 that the teaching at the church has been about being generous, so the congregation had taken up an offering for the driver, who broke into tears.

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