C. A. R. S.

Christian Auto Repairmen Service

Looking to trade in your old vehicle for a different one? C.A.R.S. would like you to consider donating it to them. C.A.R.S. (Christian Auto Repairmen Service) is a group of FMC guys who take gently used vehicles, make minor repairs on them and recycle them to people in need – usually to FMC people. Sometimes cars are sold to finance repairs to other vehicles. If you do not need the trade-in value of your vehicle, consider donating it to FMC.

Junk car

The vehicle must be in good running order with usable miles left on it.

A huge THANK YOU to those who have donated vehicles to this ministry and an even bigger THANK YOU to the men of the CARS ministry.  This is one of the most practical ministries of the church.

CARS ministry is targeted to anyone who is a regular attender of Fairview Missionary Church who cannot afford to have their car’s regular maintenance work done, with a specific appeal to single mothers, widows, or severely underpaid people.

lights                                       exhaust
belts                                        brakes
general maintenance
cars will also provide emergency repair needs. Please contact the church office for this ministry.
CARS ministry day is the second Saturday of the month with appointment times beginning at 8:30 am.
Work will be done while you wait.
