Calling all Cyclists: Opportunity to Care for & Enjoy God’s Good Creation
The CTK Creation Care Team invites both cyclists and non-cyclists to join the Lutherans Restoring Creation Team for Bike Around the Bay on October 21 & 22. Bike Around the Bay offers participants the opportunity to enjoy God’s good creation while riding around Galveston Bay over the two days of the event. As a fundraiser for the Galveston Bay Foundation, participating in this event also offers the opportunity to care for God’s good creation by supporting the foundation’s conservation work. Lutherans Restoring Creation Team members may ride one day or both days, or may be “virtual” riders. To join the team or support this effort, click on the “Join a Team”.
