We can’t wait to see you this week for Biker Sunday! Please join us as we open our doors to the motorcycle community and welcome guests for worship, lunch and a Biker Blessing! We’ll also have contests and prizes in the parking lot after second service. We are so thankful for the families God has brought to our church body each year through Biker Sunday.

If you’ve attended this service in the past, you know that we often have a short motorcycle ride into the auditorium. This will only take place during second service. If you are sensitive to sound or fumes, please feel free to attend our 9:30 a.m. service.

Please pray for good weather, a great turnout and that God will work in hearts and lives this Sunday!
