Young men from Rehoboth Baptist Church, Lavaughn Mitchell and E.J. Frails, were able to get the feel for a motorcycle when two local motorcycle groups, The Kings and Queens Motorcycle Club and the Nubian Knights, visited their Vacation Bible School Boys to Men Retreat.

The youth of Rehoboth Baptist Church bonded on a retreat that involved special motorcycle riding visitors during the Appling church's Vacation Bible School June 14-18.
After the third day of the Bible school at the church on Ridge Road, the young men of the congregation left for a Boys to Men Retreat, led by Deacon Willie Tutt. The retreat took place at the Fort Gordon Recreation Park in Leah. It offered an opportunity for the youth to learn leadership and church ethics skills.
The boys group joined the church fellowship June 17 for a special visit from two local motorcycle groups - The Kings and Queens Motorcycle Club and The Nubian Knights Motorcycle Club. Speakers from the groups, including everyone from a plant manager and correctional officer to an Army recruiter and motivational speaker, joined Deacon Ray Lewis and Margaret Adams in providing inspirational personal testimony to the youth.
The youth received rides on motorcycles, compliments of the motorcycle club members.
During a church picnic, Rehoboth Baptist also challenged fellow church Walnut Grove Baptist Church to a softball game on June 19.
