HEBRON — All those motorcycles had a reason for parking outside Heartland Christian Center’s newest worship facility.
Motorcyclists and others have a new spiritual home at the Full Throttle Biker Campus. Located in the former St. Michael Lutheran Church at 805 S. County Line Rd., the building includes a worship center, fellowship hall, kitchen and classrooms for religious education.
“It’s going to be amazing to see what God is going to do in this place,” said the Rev. Phil Willingham, lead pastor at the church with campuses in Valparaiso, Wanatah and North Judson. “God has put in our hands another piece of property for his glory and for the good of his people.”
More than 30 motorcycles lined the paved parking lot Thursday evening at Full Throttle. Some riders, already members of the congregation, came from the area. Others had a longer ride.
Bridget Darnell, from Ely, Iowa, brought her six children, ages 6 to 18. Her husband, Matthew is national chaplain for Honor Bound, a Christian motorcycle ministry sponsored by Assemblies of God.
