Bikers and their machines blessed during Biker Sunday

Blessed were the bikes -- and their riders -- who showed up to Sunrise Freewill Baptist Church Sunday.

The church played host to Biker Sunday, an event put on by the Christian Motorcyclists Association. The event featured a small motorcycle show, worship music, and a blessing of the riders (and bikes).

Emporia CMA chapter president Lori Siebenaler says it's neat to explain to people that you can in fact have the words "Christian" and "biker" in the same sentence.

Siebenaler says there are about 40 active members locally, and the organization continues to expand.
