CYCLES FOR CHRIST

Jon Polhamus one of our faithful winter residents arrives each year from Ohio with a great, big smile and a willingness to serve the Seminole area with Cycles for Christ Ministry. Jon will share with you that this was a very, small simple ministry which has blossomed into quite a ministry in two states. We outreach to our local schools and Faith Café to distribute these ready to ride bikes. Each bike is accompanied by a safety letter, prayer and an invitation to the church. As Jon states, “opportunities to spread the Good News comes out of this ministry both formally and informally—it isn’t just bike repair. Bike repair is where you start.” For more information, contact Jon Polhamus.
