An energetic group of 25-28 young bicyclists, called Spoke Folk, will be touring through West Michigan, making a special stop at Mount Calvary Lutheran Church in Greenville, Wednesday evening, June 27.
The family-friendly fun begins with a Bicycle Safety Fair at 5:00 pm, designed to teach safe bicycle riding skills to children ages 3 to 13 and their parents. Children are encouraged to bring their own bicycles and helmets as free bicycle inspections will be offered. Attendees can also enter a drawing for a free helmet.
At 6:00 pm, everyone is invited to enjoy a delicious Pork Dinner, followed by a special program of music and drama at 7:00 pm. An Ice Cream Social will conclude the evening’s activities. For more information, call Mount Calvary at 616.754.4886, or go to spokefolk.org.

Millennials are a unique group that churches often struggle to reach. Knowing why millennials behave the way they do can greatly shape how the church engages them.
