Cycling for Christ is a great new way for churches to do fundraising and raise awareness about Christianity. This is a great way to challenge yourself with the help and support of others. There are twelve states that have a cycling for Christ group, sponsored by Boutique Baptism. A few times a year they set up fundraisers and gather members from all over the United States to do bike- a- thons. They have a few different races for the different levels of cyclist. The races are set up with rest stops for food and water. These are free for the bicyclists. The churches will make the sandwiches and supply the water. This is a great way for youth to get more involved with other youth, and discuss Christ.
Each cyclist is exposed to the love and peace of Jesus Christ. This will encourage people to be more involved with the church. Adults and children will be able to meet other people with many things in common. You will be able to meet people from other churches and start up more relationships. Youth these days have a hard time feeling connected to the world. They are always being pressured to go different ways. Cycling for Christ allows them to connect with youth that is in the same situation. They will be able to learn and grow while learning about having Jesus Christ in their life.
The groups usually meet once a month to ride trails or on the roads. There is also prayer group and study. These become a close circuit of friends; you come together like family. You will learn how to become a Christian in Sport and support your friends through prayer. You can also learn how to start up your own group within your community and speak with others about God.
Together you will be able to spread His word faster and have more of a voice than alone. Being united as a group will help spread the word through sport. All Christian cycling groups use the Bible as their rule book. They will read passages and have prayers. They welcome new followers with open arms, and will be willing to help bring God into your life.
