Biker pulpit. Rock Solid Biker Church and Thrift Store

The Rock Solid Biker Church and Thrift Store was an interesting place. The thrift store and the church are the same place. Behind the counter, you can see the pews and the pulpit. The pulpit is worth going there for. It has handlebars and front forks from a real motorcycle. I wonder what it would like like when someone is actually preaching from there? The staff were nice people who were happy to talk to me about their ministry, without being too "preachy" about it. And I got a couple of good deals from the thrift store, too!

Rock Solid Motorcycle Ministries. Rock Solid Biker Church and Thrift Store

In Lynchburg, you will find a group of born-again Christian Harley Davidson bikers, right out of central casting, who run a thrift store and Biker Church. It's called "Rock Solid Motorcycle Ministries." The thrift store/church sits on a nondescript corner. Having taken a wrong turn, my husband Mike and I spotted the words "thrift store" on the corner and slowed down for closer look, and also saw the words Biker Church in one of the buildings windows. Time for an unscheduled stop!

Behind the thrift store counter were several rows of pews, and on an elevated stage was a pulpit and a set-up for a band. The pulpit had a set of handlebars and motorcycle forks attached to it. The four bikers were all decked out in leather, long hair, and deep tans from long hours of riding.

When I told them I needed a few pictures, they couldn't have been happier to oblige with a few poses. They even plied me with a stack of posters for their next "alcohol-free" rally at a nearby campground. We were invited to attend the next regular church service on Thursday night and were very tempted to go.... This is a must-stop if you are in Lynchburg-it has to be one-of-a-kind! If you are on a Harley, it's mandatory!
