 Complete with motorcycles, metric bikes, bicycles, games, food and contests, the Licking Pentecostal Holiness Church held their second Annual Bike Show on Saturday, Sept. 12, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Even with somewhat inclement weather, attendees enjoyed showcasing their bikes and all enjoyed looking at the bikes.

Motorcycle Contest winners were: First Place – Jim Bertram; Second Place – James McConnell; Third place – Dennis Pewitt; and Ugly Bike – Norman Polde. Bicycle Contest winners were: First Place – Natalie Mullen; Second Place – Armodea Mullen; and Third Place – Savarah Mullen.

LPHC continued what they hope will be an institution at the bike show by allowing non-profits to promote their causes and distribute information about their objectives.

Several non-profit organizations were present, such as the Christian Motorcyclists Association, which participates in several Christ-based ministry programs.

Several members, including those from the Salem and Lake Ozark Chapters, represented Bikers for Christ. Their mission is to share the good news of salvation through Christ to the motorcycle world as well as minister to all those in need.

Mike Florence with Bikers for Christ and KMW Ministries (knowmywords.org) introduced the KMW organization, which includes a radio program, nursing home ministry, chaplaincy program, prison correspondence courses, bible ministry and biker ministry.

The Men’s Ministry group hosted the food booth, serving hamburgers, hot dogs and sides to hungry bikers and guests.

The Children’s Church, Royal Rangers and Missionettes, served popcorn and snow cones, and, with the help of Sandra Smith, hosted a booth.

Donetta James, Director, and Terry Snelling were available for the Licking United Community Help Center, a local volunteer, non-profit organization that assists the community in numerous ways, such as the food pantry, donations to school activities and scholarships.

Dana Jones, Robin Glenn and Debra Stockard, Director, represented the Houston Pregnancy Resource Center. Their mission is to provide women in crisis pregnancies with necessary support services to enable them to carry their babies to term. These services include classes, counseling, referrals and material assistance, among others.

Youngsters Alex and Zoey were riding with the big guys on Saturday at the LPHC Annual Bike Show.

 The Saturday event was concluded with the giving away of door prizes, a message on the times we’re living in and a prayer by Pastor Erin McConnell, and the awarding of trophies.

Biker Sunday was hosted at the church the following day with Big Bob, from the Tribe of Judah, a group that evangelizes to the outlaw motorcycle community, as one of the speakers. That service was followed by a meal for all attendees.
