We are passionate at Scripture Union about seeing young people connect to God through the Bible. Two projects that we are really excited about this year are:
1. Initiating a Bible Reading Programme for young people in the KZN province – specifically in the Pietermaritzburg, Durban, Phoenix, South Coast and North Coast areas.
2. Our continued partnership with the Bible Society KZN in distributing Bibles across our Primary Schools.
Our journey with Bible Society KZN started during 2017 and as we look ahead into 2019, we are so looking forward to our continued relationship. Bible Society has given 3000 complete Good News Bibles to be distributed to grade 7 learners; as well as Bible reading literacy material for grades R through to grade 2 learners. Each grade 7 learner will also receive an E100 Bible reading challenge plan (a Scripture Union resource) with their Bibles. All the above mentioned material will be available in English, Zulu, and Afrikaans.
The aim of our Bible reading programme is to journey with young people through the Bible. Our prayer is that they will grow in God, become responsible, uphold good-Godly values, and become excellent decision makers in our society. We are so thankful and honoured that we get to see young people grow in their walk with God through engaging in His Word.
As Psalm 119:105 (the verse that is at the heart of our movement) says, “God’s word is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path.”
