Members of motorcycle, social, car and riding clubs all came together to worship and to receive a special bike blessing on April 7.
The blessing was given by the Rev. Jimmy Cue, praying that God surrounds each member with loving arms, and always gives them grace and mercy while traveling. Paul Holland with the Pit Bulls MC made a special presentation to Sr. Pastor the Rev. Douglas Slaughter, pastor of Second Baptist Church from the clubs, showing their appreciation.
Second Baptist welcomed the following clubs, and individual riders for their presence: Pit Bulls MC, Free Riders MC Inc., Atomic Dogs, Juke Joint Riders, Ole Skol New Skol, The Committee, Thirty and Up social club, Morality social club, and independent riders, all from Aiken County; and D.O.A Ryders and Wing Riders of Greenville.
After church services, the clubs gathered on motorcycles and proceeded to the Pit Bull Clubhouse for a cookout.
Paul Holland of Pit Bulls MC and Carol Scurry of Free Riders MC Inc. extended their appreciation to all clubs for being a part of the bike blessing and say, hopefully, next year, they will have more clubs coming out to worship and fellowship with them. They want to let the communities know that they are here to make a positive impact, especially involving the children.
Each club gives back to the community in many ways, and they thank everyone that supports their efforts. They ask that the community continues praying for them and the work that they do because without the communities prayers and support, it would be difficult to prosper.
