Outreach

If Jesus only reached out to the disciples then would there even be a church?
Mathew 18:11
For the Son of man come to save that which is lost.
Let us make this riding season a focused season on reaching out.
I encourage us all to reach across all denominations to invite bikers and nonbikers to our events and to our church events that are not ASR related. Jesus said “Feed my sheep”
Look at John 4 with the Samaritan woman, Jesus reached out to her which was not the normal thing to do, if we step out of the normal and try to reach all then we possibly bring in the ones nobody believed possible.
If you know of other bikers that go to other denominations then invite them to our events and your chapters rides. If other denominations are holding a biker Sunday then try to go and make friends and the opportunity to invite them will arise.
Jesus reached out to all, no barriers, no lines, just all.
Take a look at Luke 17:11-19
Jesus healed the lepers and one came back to praise and give thanks.
I really feel the bible lepers are no different than the outcasts of our society today. I myself have seen drug addicts, homeless, thieves etc and been judgmental and a couple years ago on Jeremiah Hayes ride I observed what I believed to be a homeless person and it hit me, every time I pass a less fortunate person I say a simple prayer of something like ” Lord bless them, save them”
If we reach out to all walks of life, all denominations, all we can then what a increase to the kingdom of God if just like the lepers that 1 out of 10 comes back praising God!
Mark 16:5 And he said unto them go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.

Now I’m getting selfish! Hocking Hills Biker weekend is June 26 and 27th
Book your rooms now! We are a high tourist area and rooms fill up quick and get very pricey! We blocked rooms at the Sleep inn/Main stay in Logan Ohio @ 740 331 4811 and 740 216 5300 They only had King rooms available and gave us 109 per night.
