Now first of all I have nothing against Immanuel Baptist. But right now I'm questioning how well their leaders handle their members. On my way home from church tonight we stopped at a red light behind the Immanuel Baptist Church Bus. The last thing on Earth I would expect to happen on a Church Bus happened. About 4-5 people in the back, what looked like kids stuck up their middle fingers and flipped me and my family off. Yeah, not something you would expect at all... I highly doubt any of the older people on the bus saw it, but maybe they need a little bit more authority in that bus. Perhaps maybe putting the kids towards the front and the adults in the back. Maybe the youth group is teaching them to flip people off? No but seriously, those kids either need to start taking in the lesson or just not come at all.

Think about it...I don't go to Immanuel Baptist church either but I know anytime you have a bus ministry, you have kids that live in homes where the parents don't attend church..They just send the kids on the churcch bus to get rid of them..They probably have never been taught anything except what they did...Hopefuly if they go to church long enough the chuch workers will be able to teach them right from wrong..I have the highest respect for any church thats working with kids..They are trying to make a difference in harlan..What are you doing to help besides getting on here and complaining..

Well obviously church isn't working for them. The chances of them being their first time going to church there is low. I'm complaining? What do you think you're doing. If you don't like my post don't respond. And yeah I bet you do go there, I bet you're one of the adults on the bus letting it go on. What am I doing to help? Try volunteering at Christ's hands 3 times a month. Try giving to those who don't have as much. If the kids aren't going to act any different at church than they do at home, then the attention should be focused on those who actually want to go but can't. What are you doing? You're obviously seeking some gossip, or else you wouldn't be here, now would you?

I'm just wondering why you are on topics complaining about these kids. Why don't you contact the pastor and let him know what you saw. I'm sure that he would address the matter. I'm sure he isn't going to get on topics and happen to stumble across this post and say oh my... I need to do something. So instead of ranting on here....call him.

Give me the number and I will... How am I complaining. I'm telling what happened. Not complaining. And you would be surprised how many church goers and preachers get on topix.

No, the pastor has nothing to do with this. It's the adults (if any) inside the church bus. And like coon said... I'm not complaining I'm just saying what happened.

Gve these children a break. keep complaining and do noting this is always the problem with our children today. you are responsible for complaining and not volunteering to help them. if you have that mch concern get of of your righteus prw and work with them and find out their problems. well evidently you have no compasion for them as jesus did. offend one of them and drive them from the only place they will find help and take onn your mill stone. sick of complainers and non doers.
