Plot: Red learns that if the lodge can become a religion, it can become a nonprofit organization. In order to justify it as a religion, Red decides to allow bingo games. As the games begin, and Red makes some good money from it, he and Harold discuss some ideas for their religion to show to the government. Harold even decides to become a deacon of this new religion. However, they hit a snag when they learn from the government that they may not be a religion after all. Undaunted, Red has a plan for the people in the government: convince them that the bingo games are really a church service. Red also drafts Harold, as deacon, into providing the sermon. In the end, not surprisingly, the service does not go well.
