Sermon on the Mound
This month two of our area baseball
teams where the focus of our first ever “Sermon on the Mound.” Vidalia and
Treutlen met to compete on the baseball diamond and then over 100 athletes, students,
coaches, and parents stayed afterward for a time of worship and testimonies. Matthew Powell from Treutlen shared how God
used an accident in his life to draw him closer to Him and Paul Dixon of
Vidalia challenged the students to finish the year strong. Sermon on the Mound
was hosted by Vidalia High’s FCA Student Leadership Team.
Coaches Turkey Hunt
One of the ways we intentionally try
to reach out and build relationship with coaches is through our FCA
Outdoors. We bring in our coaches and
turkey hunters on Friday evening to share a meal, a devotion, and some giveaways. Then we pair up the coaches and hunters and
they meet Saturday morning to hunt. We
all gather back up to show off the birds or to tell a tall tale. As a result of
the hunt we have the potential of sending 2 Coaches and their families to camp
and a Wrestling team to FCA Wrestling Camp.
Camps have the potential to be a high water
mark in the life of an athlete or coach. The spiritual impact of a camp has the
potential to not only change a coach or athlete, but all whom they influence.
Believing this, East GA FCA is committed to help get as many coaches and
athletes to camp as we can. So we are currently raising funds to help offset
the cost (or scholarship) for athletes and coaches and their families to be
able to attend camp. If you would like more information on a particular FCA
camp, check out www.fca.org/Camp
How can I help with camp?
The cost for coaches’ camp is approximately $1600 depending on the size
of the family. FCA Leadership camp is $380 and team Camp is around $165 per
athlete. If you are interested in helping send an athlete or coach to camp,
please contact our office at 912-537-4002.
