WHEEL POWER MISSION TRIPS – 2022
WHEEL POWER Mission Trips are always centered on Christ and the Cross as we ride to reach everyone we can with the Gospel Message of Jesus’ love and free gift of salvation! There will be lots of great riding and witnessing opportunities every day. If you are a Pickleball player, we will also have several places where we can play and talk to folks about the Lord too. Come join us for a day and experience a WHEEL POWER ADVENTURE!!!
Summer Ministry Bicycle Trip:
• Maine: Portland, Old Orchard Beach and beyond (June 1-6)
Day rides include: Portland Promenade, the well-known Twin Lights State Park and Lighthouse, Ogunquit, Kennebunkport and Perkins Cove.
Please come join our team in Old Orchard Beach on Wednesaday, June 1 for an exciting mission trip in Southern Maine. We will pedal in this quaint beach town, which should provide many witnessing opportunities, as we enjoy the beauty of the Atlantic Ocean, sandy white beaches and delicious seafood. We will pedal into Portland on the Greenway trail, around town, along the Promenade and across a couple cool bridges. Another day takes us south to Kennebunkport and with a visit to the Portland Light House and historic Fort Williams Bunkhouse and Park.
By arriving in Maine early in their season it shouldn’t be very crowded. However, I anticipate there will be lots of folks sightseeing, walking and visiting the area which will give us plenty of witnessing opportunities. We will always ride as a team, for safety and visibilty.
Overnight accommodations: you will have your choice of staying at a local campground, which is where I will be staying. The RV camp ground offers sites for trailers and RV’s, tent sites and cabins. There are several local motels/hotels close by if you prefer. The RV park also has swimming pools and many activities and is within a mile of the beach.
The cost of the trip is $150 which includes route sheets, witnessing materials, team shirt, great fellowship and daily devotions. Each team member is responsible for their own expense for overnight accommodations and meals on the Maine mission trip.
