Historic Sites & Tours
In May of 2016, conference worker Scott Christiansen and his son Beniah will start their bicycle trip across the US at the westernmost Adventist church in the contiguous United States – Forks Church in Washington State – and will end their trip in early June at the easternmost Adventist Church in the United States, the Three Angels Church in Whiting, Maine. Along the way, they will visit about a dozen historic Adventist churches, ending up at the most interesting (and oldest) Adventist churches of all – the historic churches of NNEC. You are welcome to join in for part or all of one or more legs in NNEC or to meet the cyclists at one of the churches they will stop at. The dates below are approximate, since arrival in NNEC depends on conditions over the course of the ride. Check back here for updates during May.
