Fellowship of Christian Athletes

This year, you have the chance to make Every day count. Did you know that Rockford Public Schools logo says “EVERY” student, space, day? How cool is that! Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) is starting a group here at North Rockford Middle School.

Our theme has the word EVERY in it, too! The Every Challenge is designed as the starting point to help you build a strong foundation for your year. You are not alone; we want to be with you every step of the way! Join alongside fellow competitors as we dive into the book of Ephesians and shift our focus from the things of this world to the blessings in Christ.

Please join us every other Friday morning for our FCA “Huddles” from 7:00-7:30 AM in the

NRMS Choir Room. Let’s make EVERY DAY count. Come and see! Our next meeting will be on December 2nd.
