Bus Fund: Needed - $55,900 Given to Date (5/9/13) - $36,672At our Church Business Meeting last night, we voted to move forward with the purchase of a new "wheelchair-lift equipped" Shuttle Bus, once we have the funds in hand to pay for it. A "Bus Fund" has been established, and it will cost approximately $55,900 to purchase the bus.
Today at the "Senior Adult Fellowship," the group voted to make a contribution to get the fund underway. Anyone may contribute to the fund by simply marking a contribution for the "Bus Fund."
Over the years, there have been many people who could have been picked up and brought to church if we had had a bus like this with a wheelchair lift. The lift can accomodate a person in a wheelchair, or someone who simply cannot climb steps. It is a 13 seat shuttle bus that can accomodate 2 wheelchairs or two additional seats.
Our transportation committee brought forward this need for better-equipped transportation and to replace one of our older 15-passenger vans that are now both more than 10-years old. Our finance committee recommended we have the money in hand before we purchase, and that is what the church approved.
I believe this will greatly enhance our transportation ministry, and that we can give these funds in a relatively short period of time. Thank you for considering giving to this need over and above your regular giving. May God be glorified as we seek to continue improving our capability to minister to people for Him.
