The purpose of the Bus Ministry is found in Luke 14:23 and Acts 1:8. Our desire is to reach out into the community, our Jerusalem, and invite children, teens, and adults to experience first hand all that Christ has to offer them. A dedicated group of over 30 workers visit routes and drive buses each Sunday with one overriding purpose: to reach people for Christ.
Bus service is provided in all of Garland, Sachse, and Wylie, as well as parts of Richardson and Northeast Dallas. For neighborhood routes, we offer to-your-door service. For those living in apartment complexes, we generally have a central pick up point. Some complexes have a Block Captain, generally a volunteer parent, that provides adult supervision until the bus arrives. Pick up times vary, but in general most routes pick up children between 9:00 and 10:30 A.M. Drop-off times are generally between 12:40 and 2:45 P.M. Anyone age 4 and older may ride without a parent. For those under age 4, a parent must ride with the child to church and attend the services. To schedule a free ride to church, click the link below.
The Bus Ministry provides church services for all in attendance age 4 and older. With special classes for everyone, there is sure to be a class for every child. Mom and Dad are welcome to attend as we have dozens of parents that attend every Sunday. Parents are encouraged to attend the morning church service located in the Worship Center. For your convenience, children 2nd grade and younger are brought to the bus by the classroom teachers and/or bus captains. Riders 3rd grade and older are allowed to go to the bus by themselves but remain under adult supervision. For everyone’s safety, all riders under the age of 18 have their bus number written on their hand and are required to attend their age specific service. Children under 18 may only attend services in the Worship Center if sitting with a parent.
The Bus Ministry cannot operate without volunteers. We are always looking for those that have a heart to serve the Lord and their community. Please click below for more information about where you can serve.
