Fields of Faith Event

Wednesday, October 8th 2014 - 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm at Riverdale Park
2000 E 24th Street

Athletes, coaches and families from Sioux Falls Area Churches, Middle Schools, High Schools and Universities will be joining thousands of others on athletic fields all across the nation on Wednesday, October 8, 2014, to share their Christian faith with fellow students during the ninth annual national Fields of Faith event.

This rapidly-growing, interdenominational outreach event will be held at Riverdale Park (2000 E 24th Street) from 7:30pm-8:30pm joining more than 450 locations throughout the nation on this same date. Fellowship of Christian Athletes will provide a free supper starting at 7pm for coaches, athletes and families who will be attending the event.
While many Christian rallies are anchored to an entertainer or professional speaker that creates a spectator event, Fields of Faith is structured as a student-to-student ministry. Peers invite their own classmates, teammates and coaches to meet on an athletic field to hear fellow students and coaches share their testimonies, challenge them to read the Bible and to come to faith in Jesus Christ.
A local leadership team of University of Sioux Falls and Augustana College student-athletes has determined the program for the evening. The event will feature worship songs and include scripture readings, prayers and testimonies by two prominent coaches in the Sioux Falls area. Three days before their teams face each other as rivals, Augustana College Head Football Coach, Jerry Olszewski, and University of Sioux Falls Head Football Coach, Jed Stugart, will bring their teams together and share their personal testimonies. While they may have a high profile upcoming game, the night will focus on bringing the entire Sioux Falls Area together as one team for Jesus Christ.
The national growth of Fields of Faith has been remarkable. Since the beginning of Fields of Faith in 2004, over a million people have joined in the movement. In 2013 alone, more than 170,000 students gathered on 463 fields to participate in the event.
“The impact of Fields of Faith has been incredible in just these past few years,” said Les Steckel, Fellowship of Christian Athletes President and former veteran NFL coach. “It’s all about young people in these communities coming together on their school’s athletic field and challenging each other to go back to the fundamentals of reading God’s Word and coming to faith in Jesus Christ.”

The Teen Advisory Board is planning several activities to celebrate the week.  Students in grades 6-12 are invited to participate in a Dreaming of Books Challenge.  It begins October 1 and will conclude at a library event on October 14.  Participants are invited to pick up a reading log at the library prior to October 1 and keep track of the number of pages read during the first two weeks in October.  There is a prize for the top reader, who will be announced at the Don’t Judge a Book by Its Cover event at the library on October 14, beginning at 7:00 p.m.  Book trivia, a scavenger hunt, and a matching challenge are being planned.

Look for a suggestion box in the teen area at the library.  The Teen Advisory Board is seeking recommendations for materials the library should purchase, books others should read, and suggestions for library programs and events for teens.

The next Teen Advisory Board meeting is Tuesday, October 7, at 7:00 p.m., at the library.  The members will decorate for Teen Read Week.  New members are welcome and encouraged to attend.
