339. Warm Start – Asbury UMC – St. Louis


There is a warm spirit inside Asbury United Methodist Church on Sunday mornings. During the rest of the week the warm spirit moves out on the street in front of the church where a number of different school buses stop to pick up children. For three years the congregation has served a snack for the waiting kids. With juice in warm weather and hot chocolate in cold the children board their busses for school. Rain or shine, hot or cold, beginning at 5:30 am the hearts of church members and school children are warmed each weekday school morning. Pastor Ivan James explains why they do this.
