HUBBARD, Ohio (WYTV) – The First Baptist Church of Hubbard held its inaugural Blessing of the Bikes Sunday morning.
Riders gathered around their motorcycles to receive a personal blessing for them and their bikes.
The day included a worship service and a picnic. The church’s worship committee was happy to see a dry and sunny morning for the event.
“We were scheduled for May 31 and we had a downpour that day. This is our second attempt and is the first time that we had a blessing of the bikes,” said Vickie Evans, worship committee chairperson.
Each rider received a gift and in return a collection was taken for personal hygiene items to be distributed to Hubbard school students in need.
