Shuttle Bus Ministry:
We have a 25 passenger shuttle that we use to fellowship and commute to special events like the Celebration of lights, Christian concerts and more. For Christmas, we decorated the shuttle in the nativity scene and had live actors and actresses sharing about the birth of Jesus. Halloween we taught about John Chapter 20 and decorated the shuttle with Jesus and one of his disciples named Thomas. For Easter we again, decorated the shuttle and taught about why Jesus had to die and why he had to rise from the dead. The resurrection of Christ.
Two of our volunteers are youth ministers at their church and they take people from their own neighborhood and community and bring them to youth group. Youth is a frustrating time in life. A time where they start to make their own rules on what they accept or not and have their own judgement on what is righteous or evil. As youth are feeling a sense of independence and attempting to find their identity. The Scriptures represent youth as a time both of danger and challenge. Moses said that “the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth” (Gen. 8:21), and Paul admonished Timothy to “flee youthful lusts” (2 Tim. 2:22). By way of contrast, though, the Creator also recognizes the value of youth to the divine cause. They have energy, they are daring, their hearts are filled with visions of the future. Indeed, they can be a most valuable component in the service of God. We are thankful that we are able to use this shuttle bus in so many different areas, all to bring glory and honor to God and build his kingdom.
