Congratulation to our people around Oslo for becoming a prospect chapter in Disciples. It is a solid and Jesus focused crew we got in the capital, with high experience and knowledge in motorcycles. Proud to have you all onboard! Congratulation!
Both last winter and this summer Kristiansand chapter has held open every thursday arranging both BikerChurch and a BBQ. It has been from 5-6 people up to 25 attending and has really been awesome thursdays. Dont miss out if you have a chanse to attend.
The christian mc club in Copenhagen Denmark had theire 25 years anniversary, and ofcourse we had to visit them. 15-20 of us attended the party from all Scandinavian DMM chapters.
Exodus had first a church service for bikers and then invited all to theire clubhouse for a BBQ and a concert later on. A lot of non christian clubs payed theire respect to, and it was a great day together. The rain came down pretty hard after a while and several of the guys going back to Norway got really wet. But then again we are all water proof in the end, so it turned out good 😉
Congratulation to our Danish brothers!
Finally it was time for our swedish brothers and sisters to step up from being a prospect chapter to becoming patcholders in Disciples MM International. Proud to have you onboard!
We had our annual year meeting in sweden for the occation and brought the people from the rest of Scandinavia there to honor them for theire patients. And what a weekend, Steve opened his house and business place for us and treated us like kings and queens. And the meetings we had blowed the roof of, so this was no doubt blessed from heaven big time.
We also got some new prospects both from Sweden and Norway to, so we are in a very good growth period in Scandinavia at the moment.
This spring and summer the Disciples AfterChurch in Kristiansand has been a good success and well visited from different churches. It is a good social event after the local churches in the area had theire sunday meetings. So this is a good way also for unity between churches, since friendship often are built over a meal or a social happening.
So what we do is to make a meal or have a BBQ, but also snacks and drinks, and sell this for a cheap money to the people showing up at our clubhouse after church. At the most we have served about 150 people in one sunday, and we had about 20 sundays so far this year.
Its so good to see all ages come together and enjoy what we are doing.
Mazze was before an criminal who got a visit from Benny in prison. It changed his life and he became a christian. Today he is traveling around warning youth from crimes and drugs and tell them a way that give meening to life. At this youth teen gathering at Gulbranna, 20 youths chose to become christians.
How to make the church get to know eachother?
Make a soscial setting. We made AfterChurch, a place to hang after regular church and to get some food and snacks.
Now it is in Kristiansand Norway from 50 to 150 that comes every sunday. People comes from 5 different churches to hang out together, and at the same time bikers from even more locations. A true blessing.
We are now putting up several different BikerChurch (BC) locations connected to our local chapters. We see more and more the need for having a low threshold to the local church. But also a place were you can feel free and ask about anything, and even share a testimony.
The church today dont have to much room to disciple the people that comes to The Lord. He sent out two and two after training them in smaller groups, and they came back and reported. This is what we want to do in our BikerChurches.
These BC`s will be conneced to local churches and under a leadership they can answer to.
We are also connected to the BikerChurch international and will be a part of the BC project international.
Therefore you will also see the same BC logo as on the BikerBible also on local BC`s all over Europe run by other clubs from our network to. That meens that if you get to a location you will be able to meet some of the local testimonies fro the BikerBible in person, and understand that the miracles didnt just happen 2000 years ago but it does happen to day to.
The two first Disciples locations have already started in Kristiansand Norway and Walla Walla Washington US.
