25 Jan Service & Houston Congregations
As Houston’s primmer motorcoach provider, we often work with church groups. Moving congregations is one of our favorite things to do. In this article, we will discuss the benefits of services among Houston congregations..
One of the great things about this nation is the blessing of being able to believe and worship as we choose, and one of the beautiful byproducts of this is diversity. There are so many different faith groups, and different needs depending on each congregation. Some of these groups are large with millions of members, and some are quiet denominations with only a handful of folks that are involved. We love the rich cultural fabric that results as we come together as communities from a variety of viewpoints to engage in life together.
One of the ways this happens is through serving, as that naturally seems to build bridges between us and others. Church groups have long been known for being involved in humanitarian efforts and lending financial aid and volunteers, among other things. It seems that, no matter where we look, there is no end to human need: individuals who are struggling, downtrodden, hopeless, and hungry.
When you gather as a group to do service, there is a lot that can be done in your own neighborhood and community. However, if you want to take your congregation hours away to participate in a greater effort or offer aid further from home, we think a coach is the way to go. Not only can riding together create an opportunity to get to know each other better and deepen friendships, you can also discuss the impact of the experience that you’ve shared together when you’re on your way home.
Service has a secret, and it is this: so often we do an act intending to help someone else—to relieve their suffering, to tend to their wants and needs, to be a listening ear when they feel broken. But, the surprising thing is that, in the very act, we find that what is broken in us seems to mend, too—our own struggles seem lighter, and our hearts are strengthened with new perspective to go forward in our own lives. That’s the real beauty of it.
So…when your Houston congregation is heading out for a service opportunity and needs a great way to get there, we’re only a call away! We’d love to be your groups wheels. Learn more here: https://www.firstclasstours.net/services-in-use/church-services/
