The Licking Pentecostal Holiness Church held their first annual bike show Saturday, July 6 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. LPHC Pastor Erin McConnell was the coordinator for the event, which had a dual purpose. First was to showcase the bikes, but also it provided a platform to allow area non-profit entities to give out information and visit with the attendees.

There were door prizes, games, food, fun and a prayer room, which was staffed by Diane Beers.

Several non-profit organizations were present including the Christian Motorcyclist Association, www.cmausa.org, Houston Chapter 653, which has 25 members. They participate in Missouri prison ministry; especially active are President Jim Wilson, Vice President Butch Spacek and Chaplain Ron Stow. They also visit the Texas County Jail twice a month and work with the jail chaplain. Participation is positive for the group; possibly because they ride their bikes to the facility and many inmates feel an instant connection or interest. All participants in ministry have background checks and are thoroughly checked before entering the incarceration units. 

Volunteering for G-Ma Pam’s Rack Pack, a local non-profit that helps with expenses for those battling breast cancer and their families, was Melissa Lewis and Ann Hagan.
Robin Glenn and Dana Jones represented the Pregnancy Resource Center of SCM, which provides assistance, information and support for unplanned pregnancy.
The Licking United Community Help Center was represented by Donnetta James and Terry Snelling. This agency is completely staffed by volunteers and is donation based. It is a local entity that provides a food pantry, meals to 140 needy families, assistance with class trips, support to the Booster Club, Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets, as well as emergency help to approximately 170 families.
Royal Rangers is an activity-based small-group ministry for boys and young men in school.
Building a community of real people and lifelong relationships as they grow in their personal relationship with Jesus is the goal of Encounter Ministry, represented by Bob Hoylman, Shayden Hoylman and Mike Wilson. The Ashes to Beauty Women’s Encounter group is affiliated with Encounter Ministry.
Girls Ministries, TCTC, and the Patriot Guard Riders: standing for those who stood for us, were also present.
