to get "Out & About" in ministry

This Week's Promise to Share

As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him— you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For in Scripture it says: “See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame.”

Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe,
“The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone,” and, "A stone that causes people to stumble and a rock that makes them fall.” They stumble because they disobey the message—which is also what they were destined for.

1 Peter 2:4-8, NIV

Adventist Motorcyclists on Parade in Edmonds!

It was a great day at the Edmonds 4th of July Parade! Sabbath Keepers Motorcycle Ministry NW Chapter joined Puget Sound Chapter and decorated six bikes for the parade. Judges came around and gave the group an award for "Most Original," one of six awards handed to parade participants!

We also had three divine appointments with three different ladies, one of which grew up Adventist and was looking for a church. The group invited her and her husband to Edmonds Church, where the team finished the day with a BBQ and fellowship after the parade.
