Some people would see the distance between churches as a barrier. Others see it as an opportunity. The Northwest offers some of the most scenic and pristine motorcycle routes in the world. For the past couple of years a number of churches have committed to 'prayer riding' from church to church. These group prayer rides are a great way to pursue covenant community with those you ride with and with the churches you pray for. This is a great annual trip that has been blessed to see many prayers answered and many new relationships formed. Can't make it for the whole time? Join in for the part you can do.
