FPC Motor Ministry: A Fellowship of Perpetual Change
WWJD - What Would Jesus Drive?
There you were, with the sun shining on your face and the wind blowing through your hair, flying down the road and slamming into the curves - in total control - and then something unexpected happens and you find yourself alone and stuck on the side of the road. Long before OnStar and AAA, we found direction and overcame the inevitable breakdowns in life through fellowship. And you are invited to become part of a larger group of friends and enthusiasts in the Fellowship of Perpetual Change – where we talk cars and bikes; faith and family; horsepower, handling, and hope!
We meet formally on the second Sundays of June, July, August, and September at noon on Cady Street behind the First Presbyterian Church of Northville to cruise together to an eatery where we can share our stories, encourage one another, show our cars and enjoy the shared journeys of life. Between cruises, we find opportunities to work on upgrading the parts of our lives that need repair and restoration - without judgement - with the aim of gaining more traction and power to handle the road of life that lays ahead. While we take pride in our rides, we accept everyone into the circle of perpetual change regardless of brand affiliation. Come and share your expertise and join us for the ride of your life!
