Providence United Methodist Church invites members of the community to dust off that bike, grab their leathers and take a ride with Providence Senior Pastor Diane Parrish and her husband, Ray.

On Sunday, March 2, Providence will host a special “Biker Sunday,” when bikers in the community are invited to come to church then ride with the Providence group.

After parking bikes in reserved spaces, all are invited to the Connection Café at 10:30 a.m. for free coffee and fellowship, followed by a contemporary worship service at 11:11 a.m. Immediately following that service, the group will head to LaGrange for lunch. After lunch, bikers will ride for about two hours hours through Franklin D. Roosevelt State Park and back through Warm Springs, Woodbury, Gay and Senoia before returning to the church parking lot at around 4 p.m.

Rev. Parrish explains, “Ray and I have been riding together for 20 years. I had to ride my Yamaha (not trailer it) to Sturgis twice before he would let me get my first Harley back in 2005.We thought a Biker Sunday would be a great way to get to know the bikers in this area.”

Providence is at 592 Bernhard Rd. in southern Fayette County between Ga. Hwy. 85 and Redwine Road. Call 770-719-8800 or go to for info.

Free childcare is provided during all worship services.

Now that I’m retired, I

Now that I’m retired, I thought about buying a motorcycle and joining a motorcycle club to help pass the time. I even made contact with “The Sons of Anarchy” but they had too many rules. 8 - )
