Praising the incredible work of Evarts UMC's bike ministry, where a devoted church member collects used bikes throughout the year, investing time and effort to refurbish them, ensuring they look and run like new by God's grace. The heartwarming tradition peaks with the distribution of these bikes every Christmas, in collaboration with the local fire department's collection of new gifts. Santa Claus, riding in the fire truck, spreads joy to children across the area with festive stops on Christmas Eve, reflecting the spirit of God's love. This longstanding tradition at Evarts UMC not only encompasses bikes but also involves two members collecting and preparing new and gently used toys, creating a memorable holiday for the community. The extensive outreach, starting at the beginning of the year, is a testament to the collective generosity and spirit of giving within the Evarts UMC family, guided by God's grace. Some contribute not just bikes but also provide monetary support, emphasizing the unity and compassion that define this impactful ministry under God's loving gaze.
