Great question, looking forward to answers. :-)
Scott, here's a link to an old thread where I Took My Daughter, Sarah, With Me On The Road.
I mention in that thread that we went to a church in Madison, Georgia on Easter morning.
It is something that can be done, but it is sometimes difficult. Parking is the biggest problem. Most Truck Stops don't allow you to drop your trailer there, and most churches don't have the room in their parking lot to accommodate your rig.
Some truck stops have a small chapel in the parking lot where there is a gospel meeting held on Sundays. The time I took my daughter to church, we walked from the truck stop to a nearby church.
Once you've been on the road a while you begin to know where things are located. For the rookie, something like going to church can be a bit of a challenge.
If you know where you are going to be, on that particular Saturday, or Sunday, give the church a call. Many churches have ride services, and can possibly pick you up. The church I grew up in, in Michigan, even has a few parking spots specifically for trucks, and busses, although that is rare, other churches may have that as well.
Many truck stops have a church trailer on site. Also, there is often some kind of church within walking distance of most truck stops. When I was with my trainer, I don't think he missed a Sunday service. A couple of times they fed him well while he was there.
I often thought of visiting local churches across the country. Danielsahn's call-up idea is probably the best. To do that the best way, you'll need to know on Friday where to be Sunday morning (to call the church office). Or check on Google Maps Satellite View for close by truck parking.
Many churches are happy to welcome visitors/ fellow worshippers who are just passing through. You may even get a free lunch!
The customer who is shipping the freight. This is where the driver will pick up a load and then deliver it to the receiver or consignee.
I find a rest area or truck stop to shut down at. Then I google local churches find a close church with a time I can make then call lyft or uber and away I go.
I always found that a little planning helps. Look ahead. If you are going to be out in the country it seems easier to find a church where parking is nearby and you can walk the little way to church. It's always worth it. My own church has streaming videos of church and I can call up the ones I miss.
Also, check out "Godtube.com" and you will find lots of worship services, preaching and teaching.
Truck stop ministries are in the TAs and some Petros. They are headquartered at the TAs in Jackson Georgia. I will be going to the one at the TA in Baldwin Florida tomorrow at 11 am. You can Google truck stop ministries and see all there locations.
