Fire Department & General Fund

It's a bit unnerving to step out of the office and see three fire trucks in the lot. At least their lights were not flashing. As I walked over to the trucks, I heard noise from the open gym doors. Inside the gym were a bunch of guys playing a pick-up game with guys from another station. They know we support them and love coming here to play basketball and (as a prior blog showed) demonstrate hosing techniques and run practices.

Ministry? Yes. It's a ministry of presence and availability and friendship. It's a ministry of being a good neighbor on their terms for what they need. Who pays? It takes staff time to open, set up and clean up. It takes light and water and paper goods. It's ministry from the General Fund.
