Journeying to GA: General Assembly, Great Awakening
Keep in touch during the ride!
View our blog at pedalingpilgrimage.blogspot.com
All events, reflections, devotions, and exciting things will be posted there!
Along the way, we’ll be connecting with a different Presbyterian church each night to host a worship experience in addition to blogging and posting videos throughout the ride. Why are we doing this, you ask?
To show that God is moving through our denomination. To remind our churches that we can rely on each other and connect with each other. To raise awareness about the environmental and financial costs of traveling to a huge conference like General Assembly. And to re-create our fellowship, worship, and service through recreation, Sweaty Sheep style. Get involved!
The itinerary of the trip is posted below. If you are anywhere near where we are, join us! Come to worship each night (we’ll have the times and places listed soon!), or come out and ride with us for a day or a few hours! If nothing else, send a few prayers our way for safety and strength to make it through!
