Biker Sunday (7)This was the first time we had the chapel at biker Sunday.

It was fun showing lots of people the chapel, because most of them had never heard about Transport For Christ.

Biker Sunday (10)The¬†“Call to Worship”

It was ear-splitting to be close to this sound. If I hadn’t cropped this you could see some of the singers holding their ears shut.

Biker Sunday (14)Dana Isles & Facedown did a fabulous job of leading in worship.

Biker Sunday (45)Testimony of a biker who was paralyzed from the waist down when a pickup truck hit his cycle – when stopped at a traffic light.

Biker Sunday (46)This biker was born to a thirteen-year-old girl who had been raped when she was twelve. His grandparents raised him. Growing up was tough for him, and he made a lot of wrong choices before turning his life over to Christ.

Biker Sunday (47)Dana Isles sounded so much like Lynda Randal – of Bill Gaither videos – that she was asked to sing “God on the Mountain.”

If you are not familiar with that song – this is Lynda Randal singing it: http://www.bing.com/search?q=lynda+randle+god+on+the+mountain&form=PRUSEN&mkt=en-us&refig=101e22629a354454a4167b5313ae4d8e&filters=ufn%3A%22lynda+randle+god+on+the+mountain%22+sid%3A%228d47ebbd-a092-3921-b9b1-d4798f6f0441%22&qs=MB&pq=god+of+the+mountain&sc=8-19&sp=1&cvid=101e22629a354454a4167b5313ae4d8e

Biker Sunday (63)Look what we followed out of the parking lot – my favorite cycle.

It was not our usual Sunday, but I love to worship God with other believers Рwhether in a regular church setting or in an unusual setting like this.
