Nine members of the middle school Fellowship of Christian Athletes attended the nationally sponsored Fields of Faith event last week.

Fields of Faith is a student led national event, in partnership with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and local churches. Students challenge their peers to read the Bible and follow Jesus Christ. An athletic field provides a neutral, rally point where a community can come together.

The middle schoolers attended Fields of Faith hosted by Chapel Hill High School, with high school FCA leader Blair Magee.

“It’s a nationwide organization that is associated with FCA,” Magee said. “I think it’s awesome that FCA groups or students in general get together, any time we can get a group together like that in that capacity to worship then I’m all about it.”

Athletes from both seventh and eighth grades attended the event to grow even more in their faith.

“I didn’t get to go last year because I had baseball,” eighth grader Cayson Siegley said. “I really felt like God had called me to go tonight.”

FCA is set to meet next Wednesday, Oct. 25.
