The Summer Ministry Cycle

Do you have bicyclists at your church? Invite them to be involved in ministry together. Here are a few ideas:

• Many cyclists are already riding for various good causes: diabetes and cancer research, to support the Arthritis Foundation, and many others. Support them financially and with prayer as they train and ride in these events. Sponsor a cycling team that wears jerseys with the church logo. Promote the events to get more people to ride for these causes. Show up and cheer along the course.

• Members of Northeast Christian Church in Louisville, Kentucky, started a bicycling group with a nucleus of road and mountain bike riders from the church. They have built intentional community with one another and reached out to cyclists who do not have a church home or relationship with Christ.

• Each week bicyclists at Newsong Church, based in Irvine, California, ride their bikes to local parks and distribute sack lunches and build relationships with people in the homeless community.
