Way To Go Bus Ministry!
This past Sunday was a great day for the bus ministry at Bethel Chapel as we set a new high of 95 on the bus. This is due primarily to the hard work of our four bus captains that labor to bring in all of these people. Keep up the good work and we will reach that goal of 100 real soon. The new bus (John 4) enjoyed a good day with 33 riders, Great Job!
Three Reasons Why We Do Bus Ministry
1. Seed is planted in the heart of children at a young age and they will never forget. Recently, while checking out at a Wal-Mart, the young lady recognized my name and asked if I went to Bethel, I said, yes, and that I was the Pastor. She went on to tell me that she had rode the green church bus when she was a little girl as well. They never forget.
2. Services are more exciting when you see people coming forward and giving their life to Jesus. A couple of years ago, Bro. Mike Blue pointed something out to me that I had not noticed in that morning service. During the altar service there were four different ethnic groups praying at the altar. Wow! Only in Bus Ministry!
3. Sermons are more effective when they are preached and there are actually sinners in the church. Bus ministry causes the minister to preach with greater burden knowing that there are people sitting in the pew that need God.
