Definitely a God moment at the last bike and prayer!
They were being led by God's beautiful rainbow.

Meet in the church parking lot on Monday, June 21st
from 5:30-7pm. for the next Bike & Prayer.

Book club is right after on the patio at church if you want to do both!

I wonder how God will lead us this time?
