Rev Gram and Bike

From June 2 through September 2, our pastor, Rev. Dr. Robert Gram, better known in cycling circles as "Doc Bob", will be on a pilgrimage of spiritual renewal, riding his bike across country from San Francisco to Portsmouth, New Hampshire.This ride is made possible by a $31,000 grant from the 2015 National Clergy Renewal Program awarded by the Lilly Endowment, Inc. and administered by Christian Theological Seminary in Indianapolis. Dr. Gram was the only Reformed Church pastor to be selected for this prestigious award out of 144 participating churches nationwide.

The congregation will share the ride with him through regular updates, tracking him on our Facebook page and on our website.  We will participate in events and activities starting soon which will prepare us to grow spiritually alongside Doc Bob as we join in the planning of his journey. When he" launches" on June 2, we will be ready for our own exciting "rides" here at home!

Note: Doc Bob wants you to know that he will be sixty-eight years old while on this pilgrimage, demonstrating that anyone of any age can dare to live a dream! 

Doc Bob, we will be praying for you every mile along the way!
