Michelle's Message: Springtime
Springtime has arrived and Okaloosa/Walton FCA has sprung into action with Spring Sports; Classroom Huddle Leadership nominations for 2015-2016; celebrations and appreciations for Huddles, Coaches, Community sponsorships and athletes; all of whom have been working hard this year in their respective capacities and have done so for the glory of God. Okaloosa/Walton closed March out with a great time at our second annual Sidelines Banquet. This year's theme was “Sidelines with the Rivals, Alabama vs Auburn, Let the Glory be God's”. What a great time we had with Dr. Gary Cramer, Alabama's FCA Chaplain, in addition to Auburn's Chaplain, and past football player, Wayne Dickens. Both men shared their FCA testimonials and some personal anecdotes about life as a Team Chaplain. What a great night and a great annual fundraiser. I would like to thank everyone that attended and hope that if you were not able to attend this year, you will put it on your calendar for 2016!
Team Sports are closing out the year and will be presenting the FCA ALL IN AWARD to be given to the teammate that reflects an “all in” attitude, encourages their teammates with integrity, teamwork, service and excellence. Also, classroom huddles are growing and working on appointing their officers for the 2015-2016 school year, while also celebrating another great year.
We are heading into the summer camp season with lots of opportunities for our athletes to head to camp as a team or individually. Our Camps are a great way to grow spiritually in Christ and to be united with other athletes and leaders in our community. The theme this camp year is UNDEFEATED (“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!” -1 Corinthians 15:57). The donations received by Okaloosa/Walton FCA are used to help fund these camps and to provide area athletes and students with scholarships, which allow them to attend such camps.
Okaloosa/Walton FCA hopes that all have had a great 2014-2015 year and we are looking forward to this year's Spring sports seasons and the coming summer camps! We appreciate all that our supporters, donors, volunteers, area athletes, students, and coaches have done to help area schools have yet another great year of fellowship and give all of the glory and thanks to God!
“And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” -Colossians 3:17
