God is at work in
Here's some of what the body of Christ is doing through Love Fox Valley:
May 7, 2017 was the 17th annual Motorcycle Sunday, held at Phillips Park in Aurora IL. This is an event made possible by volunteers from dozens of local churches.
With great weather, many hundreds of bikers were in attendance, about 1500 guests total. The day is designed as a mainstream motorcycle rally, with a festival stage, rock and blues bands, motorcycle shops and merchandise and food vendors.
The centerpiece of the day is the bike blessing, where guests are invited to go to their bike, where they are joined by friends of Motorcycle Sunday. Pastor Randy Schoof leads a prayer from the stage, thanking God for His blessings, asking for His protection, and inviting His presence to be knowing in each person's life. It's amazing to see bikers be visibly moved, as they are led in an expression of faith in Jesus – many of them for the first time in their lives.
National Day of Prayer
prayer walk across Aurora IL
Thursday May 4th was the fourteenth annual prayer walk across Aurora, where believers from many local churches walked together to pray for Aurora, which is the second largest city in Illinois. Starting at 9:30am at the western border of Aurora IL, prayer walkers gathered. The prayer journey would end at 6pm at Rt. 59, on the east border of Aurora.
There were twelve stops along the way, each one being a place of prayer for a particular life focus such as schools, sanctity of human life, government, service agencies and non-profits, racial reconciliation, unity in the body of Christ, businesses, etc.
5th Sunday Celebration
For over twelve years, every time there are five Sundays in a month, Christ-followers from many local Aurora IL churches have joined together for a time of worship and baptisms.
The evening ends with communion together, with a devotional led by one of the host church's leaders. There's a growing sense of love between people from different local churches, as we spend time together, doing the most important things that believers do. God is good!
