08 Sep Why We Enjoy Teaming up with Church Groups
Sometimes we transport military men and women, and other times we are taking a group of high schools to prom. Sometimes we are getting an entire wedding party to a rehearsal dinner, and sometimes we are with a group of friends who are taking a wine tour. We interact with business men and women, families, youth groups, sports teams, hotels, and provide shuttle services, too.
When it pertains to church groups, we like to assist in plenty of ways. No matter if we get to transport the choir to a singing engagement, be the wheels behind a company project, or help your youth come to a scouting jamboree, it is satisfying for us! While there are lots of reasons one could admire and appreciate what church communities do, here are some of the many things we love.
For starters, church groups tend to foster a sense of community and friendship. This is a beautiful thing and something we have been blessed to witness as we work with various church congregations.
Church groups are normally distressed to serve wherever they can. These people are serious about helping each other out and doing a good turn. From volunteering in soup kitchens to visiting members of their parish that are sick, serving is a way that people extend love and kindness to each other, and it’s just another way that faith is manifest, too.
Belonging to a church organization unveils opportunities to talk about what you believe with others. One of the reasons we think this is a positive thing is because it creates moments where people are encouraged to think critically about why they do what they do and examine the reasons behind it. It motivates members to ask the big questions, engage with others, and speak about ideas and philosophies.
Churches get associated with their communities– something that benefits all of us. Maybe you can recall attending a Bach passion in a cathedral that was put on by the cathedral choir for the public, or the way other church hosted a classical music festival every week for several months. Maybe you go to attend choir concerts that are open to the public or other arts and cultural events that churches have sponsored and joined. These are just a few examples of many ways that churches try to reach out and involve with the community in meaningful ways.
We delight in the humanitarian aid and assistance that is spearheaded by church organizations. Where there is a large group of people that are committed to a good cause, amazing things can happen. It is inspiring to watch how church groups rally and give assistance in circumstances where there is true need, and we love experiencing things like that.
It is a true privilege for us whenever we have an opportunity to engage with church groups. When you have a congregational transportation need, we’d love to take care of it.
