A&D Biker Ministries "Growing the Kingdom of God . . . one Biker at a time"
May 22, 2020
Dear Friends of A&D Biker Ministries,
What a challenging and trying time it has been, during the course of the COVID-19 pandemic. My prayer remains that you are safe, healthy, and that you have intentionally grown deeper in your relationship with Jesus Christ - as we have been forced to be “socially distant” from each other!
Two encouraging items for you:
1) God willing, (and with no legislation changes), we will begin meeting in person for worship on Saturday June 6th . . . just two weeks from the time I am writing this!
EVERY GROUP using the Fellowship Baptist Church facility will practice appropriate social distancing . . . AND will also disinfect the areas they have used, following all gatherings.
PLEASE, if you do not feel comfortable, yet, being in public worship because of health concerns, remain at home for now and continue to watch A&D Worship on Facebook Live.
I SO LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING MANY OF YOU IN WORSHIP ON SATURDAY, JUNE 6!
2) You may remember that before the Coronavirus happened, we began a Benevolence Fund - to help people who find themselves in genuine need. Along with God’s tithes, we receive this “special offering” on the last Saturday of each month that has 5 weekends. (That is 4 times a year - February, May, August, and October.)
In our February “Benevolence Offering” we received $154. Next Saturday, May 30, is our next “Benevolence Offering.” Here is my challenge to you . . . if we all would tithe on our Economic Impact Payment check (the recent economic assistance from our Government we received, due to COVID-19 / Quarantine), A&D would have a wonderful Benevolent Account to help people in times of crisis!
PRAY ABOUT THIS CHALLENGE. Respond, as the Lord directs you.
You can do a “drive-by” and drop your gift off at the church, before worship, on May 30. You can mail your check this week to either the A&D P.O. Box or to the Fellowship Baptist Church address. Either way, clearly mark your gift to be directed to the A&D Benevolent Offering Fund.
Stay healthy & safe . . . in Jesus!

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!

"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 !
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
