Wanted: Used Church Van

Salem UMC in Allentown is searching for a used, 12-15-seat church van to help facilitate its ministries. The van would be used for transporting people and also boxes of food for the church’s active community food pantry. Salem’s corporate neighbor, Capital Blue Cross, is making a 50+ car parking lot available on Sundays. Over $2,000 has been raised so far, reports the Rev. Navin Satyavrata, senior pastor, with another $2,000 donation promised, leaving a shortfall of $8,000. He hopes a dozen or more generous churches in the conference might be willing to help by contributing the balance or donating a suitable van.
