A Call to Die

by Briley Hancock,
FCS Student, 10th Grade

The past couple months have been filled with time in God’s Word and convicting lessons that have challenged me in various ways. All the lessons I’ve listened to and read have left me with at least one take away that has helped me become a more genuine follower of Christ. The Lord has been working on my heart through these lessons, and He is helping me grow in the areas that have been addressed in chapels recently and in a 40 day devotional book we’ve been reading, titled, A CALL TO DIE, by David Nasser. I’ve been challenged to “become a doer,” speak truth, love others, and have been encouraged to overcome temptations. Continue reading

“Students Helping Students!” through EAGLE FIT

“‘Which of these three do you think proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell into the robbers’ hands?’  And he said, ‘The one who showed mercy toward him.’  Then Jesus said to him, ‘Go and do the same.’”  Luke 10:36-37 (NASB) These familiar words of Jesus motivate his followers time and time again to show love and do good to those in need around them.  One way the elementary students at Faith Christian School are applying this principle is through the Eagle Fit program.

Wrestling Season

by Johnathan Townsend

pict 1Sports are hard, but none are as difficult as wrestling. Recently, I joined the high school wrestling team here at Faith. It was rough, and it took a lot of determination to finish the season. Practice was brutal, often ending with my picking myself up off the mat; however, the experience had its perks as well.

pict 3I learned many lessons about wrestling. Practice was painful; yet, working through the pain, I eventually could keep going despite my sore, aching body. I learned to push myself beyond my physical and mental limits, going further and further than I originally thought I could go. Perseverance was my best friend.

pict 2Unfortunately, I lost a lot of matches throughout the season. There were multiple times when I got really close to winning a match, only to fall short of victory. My final record stands at 3-20, but this season was only my first year of wrestling. I look forward to next season because I know that I will continue to improve my skills and my record.

Friendship Banquet: from a Servant’s Perspective

Fine Food, Fancy Rooms, and Very Large Serving Trays

by Johnathan Townsend

On Friday, March 14th, I was able to serve at Faith’s Friendship Banquet. The night, for me, was tension-filled when I and my fellow servers gathered together in the gym to receive our instructions. I wandered around, chatting with the others while I worried about how well I was going to perform during the banquet. I worried over the very likely possibility that I was going to spill someone’s drink or drop a plate of food on someone while I entered the crowded room with a large tray of hot food. Continue reading

Friendship Banquet

By Noelle Haynie

Connecting the Past to the Future

“Considering my past with trying to get out of serving at this very banquet in years past, I find it highly ironic that I stand before you today speaking,” said Luke Fausett. Friday night was one to remember, filled with laughter, worship, and celebration. This year’s annual Friendship Banquet connected the past with the future, as several alumni spoke of Continue reading

White-Out

By Alli Wickes

picture 1Picture this, it’s Friday night at the Faith Christian Varsity game. The room is pretty packed because it’s not just any game, it is senior night. A large group of kids walk into the gym decked out in all black and make their way to the cheer block section. They sit down and remain almost completely quiet until the game begins. Even the cheerleaders are draped quietly under a black sheet.   The crowd begins to wonder what happened to the excited cheer block and enthusiastic kids they had heard about. Little did they know those silent kids dressed in black had a very big plan. Continue reading
