FCA stands for Fellow of Christian Athletes. It's all about taking things you have learned from being an athlete and a Christian and applying them in your daily life. This year FCA has grown and is continuing to grow. Last Sunday we traveled to the Medina for Fields Of Faith. We listened to great music, people preach, and did activities with other Chapters of FCA in our area. We all are very excited to be in FCA this year.
