The Bus Ministry was officially established in April of 2012. We began with a small bus but quickly grew to a 15 passenger van by the end of 2013. During our VBS of 2016 we were making two runs to pick up children. After VBS was over we still maintained most of the children from during that time. By October we grew beyond the 15 passenger van and purchased another 15 passenger van. By the second run with both vans we discovered that a third was going to be needed very soon.
And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them. But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. -Mark 10:13-14
Stay tuned for another update as God continues to bless our church with excited children!
Who can ride the vans?
Children five years old and older (completed kindergarten) can ride the vans without parental supervision if the NPPBC Consent Form is signed by their parent or legal guardian. A properly signed NPPBC Consent Form is required in order to ride the vans as this is a safety rule.
When does the vans pick up?
Our Sunday morning route starts picking up at 8AM to attend our 9AM Worship service. A light breakfast is usually served prior to church service. Sunday School begins around 9:30AM and the vans leave for home around 12PM.
Our Wednesday night van service starts at 6PM. We arrive around 7PM for Children’s Church and dinner. Students are usually home by 9PM.
