July 9, 2012, Pastors Paul and Sandy Golden embarked on an 11,000+ mile journey to raise funds for the Light Christian Center (LCC) Emergency Response Team. Borne out of a need for tools and supplies and to raise awareness for first responders, these pastors have undertaken this monumental motorcycle ride from Alvin, Texas to North Pole, Alaska calling it the Ride 4 Responders.
Just over half way as of this writing, this journey so far has allowed Paul and Sandy to touch the lives of many people along the way. In every stop, they have talked to the first responders to honor them for putting themselves in harm’s way for others. They have also shared the love of Jesus with the people they've met. These remarkable Pastors have an endless supply of love for their fellow man and are willing to do remarkable things in order to accomplish the work that God has placed on their hearts.
Under the Golden’s leadership, the LCC team of volunteers was there after Hurricane Ike, the tornadoes that devastated Arkansas and of course their local community, Alvin, Texas. This small congregation has often demonstrated that much can be accomplished when people, living out the love of Jesus, pull together. Always the servants, Paul and Sandy have led the way.
To honor your First Responder, sign the Honor Roll to thank these brave people who stand in the gap when the need arises.
