Annual Covenant Ride

Annual Covenant Ride – October 22, 2016 


This is our annual ride that is co-sponsored by Covenant UMC and Pendleton UMC. This year the Covenant Ride will begin at CUMC and end at PUMC.


The primary goal of the Covenant Ride is to increase awareness and exposure to Covenant Riders, CUMC and PUMC.  Our secondary goal, but of great importance, is to raise money for local missions and possibly other national and international concerns.  Ideas for missions include Blessings in a Backpack and purchasing mosquito nets for families in Africa.

Covenant Riders is an informal group of motorcycle enthusiasts who share a passion for Christ, and are an outreach of the Covenant United Methodist Church in LaGrange, KY.  We meet on a regular basis to discuss upcoming events, future and past rides, and local concerns within our community.  Participation with Covenant Riders is open to all types of bikes and religious beliefs, although most of us believe Jesus Christ to be our Savior.  During rides and at our meetings, we start and finish with prayer.
