Spoke Folk to visit area churches

Spoke Folk, a bicycle ministry, will be putting on night programs at area churches over the next couple weeks as the group travels around the state. The public is invited to attend any of the shows.

Spoke Folk is a bicycle ministry composed of 15-20 year old youth and some adults that travels from church to church on bicycles. At each church they put on a family night program with music, skit and a puppet show. It’s a fun, faith-filled time had by all!

This ministry is very good at building up the self-esteem of the youth involved. When they finish a 50 mile ride, they feel better about themselves and what they can achieve.

This specific group has youth from all over the country. The group has 26 people in it, but could grow yet. Registration stays open until tour starts.

Training will be at Long Lake Lutheran in Isanti and starts Wednesday, July 27. After a couple training rides, the group will officially start biking Sunday, July 31, when they bike to Cambridge Lutheran. Here’s the rest of the bike trip dates and locations:
