FCA meetings taking place in the morning helps students start their day off right. It clears their minds of all negativity that may occur later in the day.
Junior Marc Davis says, “When I struggle during the school day, I think back to what was talked about in FCA that morning and it helps me in the situation I am struggling in.”
Nathan Espy, Scholars Academy FCA Sponsor hopes that students realize that God has an awesome plan for their lives.
“In order to realize this plan, they must surrender to God's will daily and trust that he always is working for our good, even during the most difficult times,” said Espy.
Keith Gwaltney, Thomasville High FCA Sponsor explained that FCA is a student-lead organization for kids that are interested in being Christ followers on campus.
“Its main goal is to make the gospel available to everyone on campus. We want to bring kids into a fellowship with other believers, see kids get saved, and see lives transformed,” said Gwaltney.
The topics of the messages that are discussed in the meetings are not just about God; they are also about how to act toward others, how to tackle a difficult situation, or just everyday life. At the end of each meeting, the students think about what was discussed and how they can relate it to the Bible.
Junior Margo Rainey has been in FCA for six years and loves the positive mood it gives her in the mornings.
“I’ve learned to not be afraid to share my faith with at school and to teach others,” said Rainey.
FCA went on a field trip to an FSU football game in the fall, with the purpose of getting students to go on a fun outing and a chance to hear the gospel at a gathering prior to the football game.
“[The FSU trip] gives me a chance to get to know some of the kids on a different level,” said Gwaltney.
The great thing about FCA is that students do not have to be an athlete to join and new members are accepted and can walk in at any time. All students have to do is show up to the FCA meetings at either THS on Thursdays or Scholars Academy on Tuesdays.
