Dear Friends of A&D Biker Ministries,
Everything around us is changing, with the current COVID-19 pandemic.
To help with the fight against spreading the coronavirus, effectively immediately, Fellowship Baptist Church has instituted compliance with both the statewide and national recommendations for social distancing. That specifically means for us the following:
- There will be no meetings, small groups, Bible studies, or corporate worship services held in the Fellowship Baptist Church building.
(If small groups want to meet in homes, that is up to you individually.)
- There will be no Palm Sunday Pot-luck Brunch at Fellowship Church
on Sunday, April 5.
However, members of our Worship Team who are willing to meet at the facility on Saturday evenings WILL lead praise and worship (our music / singing), and we will continue to preach our Lent sermon series - LIVE. OUR WORSHIP SERVICES WILL STILL BE BROADCAST, VIA FACEBOOK LIVE. All of our congregation is encouraged to “attend” worship by watching / participating through Facebook live! (We will honor the challenge by our national leaders to have no more than 10 people in the building during our worship broadcasts.)
THIS NEW PARADIGM IS EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY . . . WITH THE HOPE THAT WE CAN AGAIN MEET TOGETHER FOR WORSHIP ON EASTER WEEKEND (SATURDAY, APRIL 11). We will watch what unfolds with this crisis, over the course of the next 3 weeks, and keep you posted as to the viability of us indeed meeting together again on Saturday, April 11.
Everything around us is changing . . . except the sovereignty of our mighty God! Hold on, in prayer and faith, believing the promises of our heavenly Father:
Deuteronomy 31:8 (NLV)
The Lord is the One Who goes before you. He will be with you.
He will be faithful to you and will not leave you alone. Do not be afraid or troubled.
Romans 8:31; 35; 37-39 (KJV)
31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

WHAT IS A&D?
We are not a Biker Club.
We are not an Association for Motorcyclists.
WE ARE A CHURCH, IN SOUTHEAST WISCONSIN . . . a relevant and contemporary ministry for those who love to ride the open road on 2 (or 3) wheels . . . BUT, we are not "churchy". Our desire is to reach people who may not always feel comfortable in a traditional church setting. A&D Biker Ministries does not have any stained glass or steeples, BUT we are leather and denim friendly!

WHAT DOES A&D STAND FOR?
"A&D" is the abbreviated name of our Church: "Armed & Dangerous Biker Ministries" . We are committed to being "armed" with God's Word (the Bible) as the spiritual and moral compass to help us navigate through life. We believe, as the Bible teaches,"Everything in the Scriptures is God's Word. All of it is useful for teaching and helping people and for correcting them and showing them how to live" (2 Timothy 3:16).
We also want to be "DANGEROUS" against sin, evil, and spiritual darkness, with the love & grace of God. Our God is NOT mean and angry and unforgiving . . . He is merciful & forgiving & never-ending in His love for us. The Bible says, "God showed how much He loved us by sending His one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through Him. This is real love - not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins. Dear friends, since God loved us that much we surely ought to love each other" (1 John 4:9-11), and, "Love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins" (1 Peter 4:7-8). As we receive God's love and forgiveness personally, we can love othersunconditionally !

WHAT DOES A&D BIKER MINISTRIES OFFER?
Worship - Saturday evenings, at 6:00 pm, A&D gathers for contemporary and relevant worship celebrations. With music, teaching from the Bible that really helps us in daily living, and fellowship with friends . . . our worship is most definitely NOT your grandma's Sunday School! And, we are leather and denim friendly.
Breaking Chains - An awesome addiction recovery program designed for everyone! Alcohol, drugs, and sexual addictions (to name a few) are addressed in practical and Biblical ways. With appropriate confidentiality AND accountability, B.C. will help lead you to life transformation - not just behavior modification!
Small Groups - Available for both men and women, to study together the Bible/life issues/and for mutual encouragement and accountability. What a great way to make new friendships AND to grow stronger in your personal spiritual journey!
Emotionally Healthy Living - "Emotionally Healthy Living" is a BIG part of A&D Ministries. We believe that everyone has suffered hurts in life that leave us withemotional scars. Often, we live all of our life through this 'invisible pain' . . . which is very visible in our behavior: anger or rage, the need to control, insecurity, fear, etc. E.H.L. can set you free!
<Financial Peace University - Are you tired of living paycheck-to-paycheck? Are you like most Americans, drowning in credit card debt? Then this is for you. "Financial Peace University" is a funny name for a serious course that teaches you how to get out of debt and to LIVE DEBT FREE. Learn Dave Ramsey's principles of sound money management and the 'Seven Baby Steps' toward being able to say, "I'm debt free!"
The Wednesday Meetings are now on
Thursday at 6:00!
