MGBC has two exciting ways to get involved and meet people while staying (or getting) in shape: Cycling Ministry and Fitness Class.

Cycling Ministry

The cycling ministry is a group of bicycling enthusiasts who are passionate about God. The goal and purpose of the group is to develop meaningful, Christ-centered relationships with those within the group and to also reach out and share the love of Christ with those outside the group through the opportunities that a Cycling ministry provides.

The Cycling ministry meets monthly from April through October for fellowship and encouragement. These meetings center around 'rides', where attenders can enjoy their hobby together, but also include food and conversation. Monthly, the group has a Road Ride. These are designed for adults and teens of various skill levels, and include a 5-8 mile 'short' ride, a 10-15 mile 'sport course', and a 20-25 mile 'long course'. On a regular basis, the group also hosts Family Rides. These are times of fellowship and enjoyment of God's creation. Anyone can be involved in the Family Rides, and each can go at their own pace. Spare bikes and helmets are available at both rides, but a reservation is neccessary. If anyone is interested in attending any of the rides, make a reservation by calling Jason Butler at 814-614-4059.

In order to be a light to the community by sharing the love of Jesus Christ, the Cycling ministry has started 'Wheels of Joy' to reach out to area familes and children in need during the Christmas season.

If you have any questions about the Cycling ministry at MGBC, call Jason Butler at 814-614-4702.

Fitness Class

Everyone has needs beyond the spiritual. The Apostle Paul said that our body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, and so we should honor Him with our body. The fitness classes provide an excellent opportunity to do just that; honor God by staying in shape! The classes are open to individuals 16 and older who are looking for a fun way to stay in shape, while making lasting relationships. There are no strings attached; no fees, no membership, no attendance requirement. We just want to help meet your physical needs while also encouraging you spiritually.

The classes meet on Mondays at 7:00 pm and is instructed by Jennifer Butler. Our goal is to provide a safe program that focuses on three areas of physical fitness: strength, flexability, and cardiovascular health. Anyone interested in joining is welcome to come and observe.

For more information concerning the Fitness Program, feel free to contact Pastor Brian at
