Members of the SonShine Club child care program at the Payson United Methodist Church, church members and children from Payson Community Kids all participated in christening the SonShine Club bus this weekend.
They will all be among those benefiting from the transportation service provided by the bus from their schools to the church for the new program, which provides education-oriented after-school care.
Brad Bolt, program director, said it was felt the christening service was important to help the children understand the SonShine Club is a ministry to the community.
