Join a group of bikers for a beautiful, Labour Day weekend bike ride through the Whiteshell.
The sixth annual Ride With The King is back this coming weekend. This year, the group will be riding through Whiteshell Provincial Park as they raise money for the Marchand Chapel.
"We are riding to promote Christianity and relationships with Jesus Christ," said Ken Penner, the pastor of Marchand Chapel. He has been a part of every event so far. "The fellowship, the encouraging each other, it's always been a real blessed time."
Previous years ride's have been for the benefit of Richer Church and Penner has been heavily involved, not just with fundraising, but with the work being done on their youth building.
"I believe it's a worthy cause," Penner said about being involved year after year.
"It is very important for us to get together as a group of bikers to encourage each other and to help each other out," he said. "That's very important."
Penner has been heavily involved in the are, volunteering his time at events like this, but also helping out other churches and even cooking pancake breakfasts on his homemade cooking trailer.
"I believe as a disciple, it is important that we reach out to people," Penner said. "Our intent is to make an impact for the kingdom in people's lives and what better way to do it them be involved with them."
