FCA has finally started back up after being shut down by COVID last year. Fellowship of Christian Athletes, or FCA, is ran by a group of students that all have one thing in common, wanting to spread the word of God.
FCA will hold gatherings every Thursday at 7:17 a.m. in the classroom by the field house with a different guest speaker at each meeting to share their journey with God.
“Our main goal is to become more like a family with the people and our school instead of being so disconnected,” junior Hannah Fewkes said. “A way we can all be connected is through FCA.”
This year is the first time all of these leaders have been in charge of FCA. They have been getting it organized through some private meetings over the summer with help from one of the athletic trainers, Billy Abbe.
“We’re just going to go with the flow,” junior Dylan Slack said. “We’ll see what happens and go with it.”
Junior Marin Murray said FCA isn’t just for athletes. It’s for anyone who wants to grow their faith with others. You can be in a community that is accepting and constantly looking for others to be a part of it.
“It gives students a community of people that have the same goals as them,” Murray said. “It allows them to be encouraged and surrounded by those people.”
FCA is about not just growing as an individual but also as a school and community.
“It’s a good way to hear it in school,” Slack said. “It allows for school to be an outlet and get them plugged into a church.”
Hannah Fewkes said it can be hard to have a strong faith especially in school, so FCA is just another way to stay connected to Christ while being in school.
“You can continuously grow your faith instead of having all these distractions with school,” Fewkes said. “It’s like a relief.”
