Bus Program

Our bus routes run on Sunday afternoons picking up in Cleveland and Gaston counties North Carolina and York and Cherokee counties South Carolina. Our buses will pick up your children in front of your home. On the way to church, your kids will participate in bible based bus songs, games, and are taught a short Bible lesson on the bus. The church provides a small snack and drink while they are on our buses.  Once they arrive at church, your child will receive an age appropriate church experience with fun activities and bible preaching.
After bus church, our bus workers will take your children home on the bus, walk them to the front door, and drop them off with a parent or approved guardian.

At Church

Once they arrive at church, they will be escorted into the church where friendly, competent teachers will receive them. Your child will receive an age appropriate church experience with fun activities and bible teaching or preaching depending on their age.

Drop Off

After church service, our bus workers will ensure each rider is escorted back onto the correct bus and driven back to your door. Our bus workers will walk them to your front door, and drop them off with a parent or approved guardian.  The following Saturday, your bus captain will return to visit your children and to ask them to again ride the bus to Church.
