CMA is an international ministry dedicated to serving the motorcycling community. CMA’s headquarters are located in Hatifield, Arkansas. CMA has over 400 chapters located all over the world, with over 60,000 members. CMA divides the country up into regions, with a CMA evangelist assigned to each. Each region is then divided into states. Because of the vast western area, Utah is joined with Idaho and Northern Nevada to form the Tri-State Area. CMAchapters representing this Tri-State area are located in Twin Falls, Blackfoot, and Boise, Idaho; Elko, Nevada; Logan, Ogden, Salt Lake City, and in the Provo-Orem area. Each year each state holds a “rally.” Formed in 1992, the Ogden Chapter was the first CMAchapter formed in Utah. Because this is its tenth anniversary, a request was made to hold the rally in this area. What better, more beautiful place, than Ogden Valley. The rally will be held at Snowcrest Jr. High School. People from all over the Tri-State area, as well as neighboring states, will come together for a time of teaching, fellowship, and fun. The event is open to the public. Most of the participating families will set up camp on the school grounds on Friday, although some will arrive on Saturday as well. The rally will begin with an evening meeting on Friday, June 14 at 7:00 p.m. The meeting is traditionally a time of music, sharing, teaching, and fellowship. On Saturday morning, a service will be held, followed by a motorcycle ride through the Valley. The afternoon will bring bike games, seminars and fellowship. Another service will be held Saturday evening, followed by an outdoor concert of Christian music, and a “ pie run.” Another service will be held Sunday morning, and the group will then disperse. The public is welcome to drop by to look at the bikes, join in any meeting, or just to watch the bike games. Between 150 and 200 participants are anticipated at the event. CMA is a family oriented ministry, with programs for children, teens, and adults. For more information, call Rick or Debbie at 745-8675.
