Christian Bikers Convert Bar Room into a Church 03/07/2013

By Dayna Lovelady
Black leather, tattoos and jeans are the proper Sunday worship attire at a Virginia biker church that meets in a former troubled bar. Opening its doors to 55 worshipers, Sunday marked the first service in the building formerly used for late-night drinking and clubbing.

Seven Cities Freedom Bikers Church (SCFBC) in Chesapeake, Va., is home to bikers who share a common love for motorcycles and Jesus. They call the Bible their "Owner's Manual for life" and they ride for Christ's sake on the open road. Blakely's Nightclub is the former bar that the church now uses for Sunday worship services, and much like many of the bikers' lives, the bar is also transformed.

Bikers are known for negative things and we are taking a building that was used for negative and using it for good. We are doing something that is kingdom minded."
