Church Bus Information The church bus is available to transport those who wish to attend Sunday morning Worship at 11.00. This transportation service has been underutilized because the information presented has requested that those desiring a ride call the church no later than Friday. However, if for any reason you would like a ride but did not call by Friday, this is not a problem, you may still ride. We have two drivers who take turns driving. On Saturday or even early Sunday morning you may call 2247044 (Bob Barden) or 223-2632 (Larry Hartley). If you do not receive an answer at the first number please leave a message and then call the second number and if you do not receive an answer leave a message there also. The drivers communicate with each other and plan that one of them will always be available. Please do not miss worshiping together because you think you do not have transportation!
