FRIDAY BUS DRIVERS NEEDED!
Every Friday for many years, Noel has provided transportation for Jordan Square Apts. residents (down the street from the church) who are elderly and disabled, so that they may shop for their groceries at Brookshires on Kings Hwy. Volunteers drive the church bus, and coming up soon, 2 of our 4 volunteer drivers will be ineligible to drive because of reaching the maximum driving age for our church insurance. We are in great need of replacement drivers and ride along adults to assist. This is a rewarding ministry that is greatly appreciated by those depend on it each Friday (4-12 people each week). What's involved? See below and contact Rachel Scott at 221-5207 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or sign up below.
