Shine The Light
Matthew 5:16 Let your light shine before men, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.
Taking this Scripture to heart, Keystone Cruisers for Christ, the Fellowship Riders affiliate at New London Baptist Church in West Grove, PA has been finding several ways to be Salt and Light in and around their community.
Involving the Youth Department as well as many of the congre-gation who do not ride, they have been a part of a Halloween Parade where, for the 2nd year in a row, they won First Place for Religious Organizations as they passed out tracts and candy. In a nearby town, they participated in a Christmas parade where they handed out 500 bags of candy with a child-centered tract but found that they could have doubled that number – which they intend to do for next year.
To supplement their riders, they have purchased a Cushman trike to carry people, gift/candy bags with Gospel tracts, Angel Tree gifts, and a number of other uses. Especially helpful in local parades as well as gift deliveries for Angel Tree recipients, the trike relieves riders from trying to pass out candy and tracts or haul gifts while safely allowing them to concentrate on riding and communicating with the children and adults.
For the Prison Fellowship Angel Tree for Prisoners Children, 17 children; with one or both parents in prison; received 4 gifts each provided through the efforts and love of the entire congregation. God said He would “bless you that you may be a blessing” and one of the truly tangible ways to accomplish this is through ministering to the prisoner and his/her children. Still feeling the Lord’s anointing and being blessed by blessing others, Keysone Cruisers for Christ will be expanding the number of children and caregivers they touch in Jesus’ name for 2016.
