Seasons of Refreshing event held
MARQUETTE — The Christian Motorcyclist Association is holding its annual Seasons of Refreshing in Marquette this year.
The events are free to guests and family oriented. Participants don’t have to ride a motorcycle to attend. It’s about worship and having fun.
The rally’s theme is “Compel” and the speaker will be CMA National Evangelist Jay Wilber and his wife, Jane.
The U.P. CMA Seasons of Refreshing will be Friday and Saturday at Faith in Christ Fellowship, Faith in Christ Fellowship, 101 Oak Ridge Drive (near the Crossroads), Marquette.
The event will include worship music, games and other events. Registration starts at 4 p.m. Friday, with service beginning at 7 p.m. A Friday evening pizza party fellowship will follow the service.
Saturday, service starts at 9 a.m. There will also be a fellowship luncheon at the church.
“It’s just a time to get together and get excited about the riding season,” said Terry Sayatovich, CMA state co- coordinator for the Upper Peninsula along with her husband, Jim, in a news release.
Being March in the U.P., rides aren’t scheduled, Sayatovich said. But the CMA does plenty of that in the rest of the year, including a state rally Aug. 23 in Crystal Falls. “Our goal is obviously to reach people for Christ, so we go to a lot of the secular rallies in the U.P., state, Sturgis,” she said. “We do a lot of bike blessings and just spread the word of Christ. Helping people when they need help, whatever comes our way. “
Other events include a Lake Superior Circle Tour in August and a new four-wheel ride from Hancock to Copper Harbor in September.
The group also participates in other events, such as doing security for last weekend’s Snowmobile Hill Climb or riding in the annual Ride for Abuse to protest domestic violence.
“It’s worldwide, and the work they do is phenomenal,” Sayatovich said in the release. “We started going to the rallies and the functions and they became family. It’s a way to spread the word of God. You do by example. People see your heart and it’s amazing. You be who you are, and people want to be part of it.”
The event will be held at Faith in Christ Fellowship, 101 Oak Ridge Drive Cross Roads, Marquette. On-site registration prices rise to $15 for adults and $7.50 for children (ages 4 to 17).
The pizza party fellowship is $5 per person. For other questions, call Jim or Terry Sayatovich at 906-281-4521 or 906-281-7179.
