Bus Kids

Bus Kids is a Saturday morning children’s ministry once a month at Living Word Church in Branson West, Missouri.  This ministry, a vision of Pastors Dan and Joan Olson, was birthed during the summer of 1999.  The ministry is continuing to run today and we currently have two bus routes in operation.  This unique, high energy program is unlike any other in this area and appeals to ages Kindergarten-5th grade.

Our purpose is to reach out to children with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and demonstrate His love.  We teach them Biblical principles through exciting Bible skits and lessons, songs, memorization of scripture, and puppets.  We also add fun and excitement through prize giveaways, games, and contests between the boys and girls.  The children are even served lunch before they return home.

Since conception,  over 1,100 children have accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior!  Our goal is to begin new bus routes throughout this area so that we may reach even more children and make a difference in their lives.

You help us make an even greater difference through your financial support.  Please contact our church office at (417) 272-1959 or make your contributions through our online services.
