Innovative ministry at a church in Marysville, CA: free bikes

Innovative ministry at a church in Marysville, CA: free bikes

Working in collaboration with their local police department, St John’s Episcopal Church gave away bicycles that the police donated from their evidence room. One of the bikes came with a cart attached, which proved fortunate for a couple who have three small dogs and wanted to take trips with their pets.

Bicycles are an ideal vehicle for short trips, and are used by commuters all over the world. Would your church participate in a similar ministry? Are there other practical outreaches that churches can use to help people?

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
