On the Highway
The Voice of the Truckers Outreach Ministry of the Bible Baptist Church

Article from May 2005, Volume 1, Issue 1


     Welcome to the first issue of On the Highway. OTH is a monthly newsletter for professional drivers published by the Truckers Outreach Ministry of the Bible Baptist Church in Richfield, Ohio. Juggling family, friends, finances, and freight on the highway is not easy. Try to add faith to the mix and it can be nearly impossible. That is why we have developed this little newsletter. Our desire is to help you develop a strong, deep faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; a faith that will help you handle family, friends, finances, and freight.

     OTH is distributed free of charge at truck stops and other locations as the Lord provides. If you would like to receive a copy by mail, please let us know. If you would like extra copies to distribute at a truck stop near you, please contact us.

     Along with this newsletter, we are also developing a website (http://oth.mapleknoll.us) with a variety of helps, resources, and information. The website will also link to the Bible Baptist Church in Richfield, Ohio, as well as to several sites to help you locate a church while on the road.

     I would also like to invite you to visit the Bible Baptist Church if you are in northeast Ohio. We are located about midway between Akron and Cleveland, Ohio, just off Interstates 77 and 80 on State Route 21. (Please see map on the back.) Parking is available for your rig at the restaurant next door or at the motel across the street. We even have limited truck parking available on the premises. Or, you can call for us for a ride (330-659-6561) from the Pilot Truck Stop.

     Although we are a small church, we have a big heart for truckers. Most of our members - including me - either are or have been involved in the trucking industry themselves or have family or friends who are or have been. So, don't worry about fitting in, you are always welcome here whether you are in town for a few days or just off the truck for a few hours. Our desire is to help professional drivers come to Christ by faith, trusting Him as their personal Lord and Savior, so that their sins may be forgiven and that they might be assured of eternal life in heaven and to help those who have come to Christ live an abundant and victorious Christian life of service, worship, and growth while bringing honor and glory to our Lord and Savior.

     God bless! We hope to see you soon...On the Highway!
