A couple of Saturdays a month, Christ Community Church in Omaha, Nebraska, does oil changes, basic car maintenance, and repairs for single mothers, widows, and others in need. While volunteers with experience as mechanics work on the cars, other volunteers sit down with the women being served and get to know their stories over a cup of coffee.
"A majority of the people who come for the oil change have no affiliation with our church or any church," said Darrell Bush, who coordinates the ministry. "Many women have mentioned that they would have no other means to get basic maintenance taken care of if it weren't for this ministry."1
