Ride for Faith | Friday 22nd January, 2016
It’s no secret.
Young people today are consumed and distracted by the hustle and bustle of life. There’s so much that our world has to offer that it’s easy for them to get lost in it all. A self-centred focus on career and consumerism has become the new ‘opiate of the masses’.
Drifting away and seeing the church as ‘Irrelevant’ or ‘Out of Touch’ this current generation is rejecting the faith of the previous. Adopting secularist based positions on many of the issues that confront them, we are losing our young people to the popular world view of today.
It is reported that up to 50% of 15 to 25 year olds who grew up in church leave their faith with most never returning.
This is where SU makes a difference!
Each year, SU Camps, Beach Missions and School Programs offer a chance for thousands of young people to get away from all the distractions, and get into the life Jesus has for them. A Life full of Hope and Love!
SU programs create community, reinforce faith, and encourage, equip and empower young people to live out their faith in Jesus.
This is how YOU can make a difference!
Using the Tour Down Under / BUPA Challenge as a backdrop, The Ride for Faith tackles the same course as the worlds elite professional cyclists.
Support the 2016 Ride for Faith and you will help Scripture Union SA continue to take the good news of Jesus to thousands of children, young people and families across South Australia.

A ‘Team Meeting’ will take place shortly to discuss the event and answer any questions you may have.
