As the final month of the school year became crowded with testing, final projects, grad parties, summer trips, and college planning, FCA took time to pause and celebrate how the seniors have grown over the last four years. We hosted a “senior send off” where all FCA leadership seniors from the Newport-Mesa school district had the opportunity to enjoy each other’s friendship, recall their memories together, and respond to a challenge to be a light for Christ on their college campus.
The seniors also had the opportunity to share at their school’s final huddle, an experience that was both a blessing for them, and for those listening.
Sarah Condon, president of Newport Harbor FCA, delivered an incredible message on perseverance during Harbor’s final huddle. She spoke on Ecclesiastes 3:1-8, reminding the students, “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens…” She encouraged her peers to continue to trust God, even when they can’t see Him and trust that He has a plan and a purpose for them! Her wisdom penetrated the hearts of the students!
Estancia FCA president, Jackie Hubbard, and vice-president, Abby Garcia, both reflected on their four years with FCA during their last huddle of the year. The girls shared how God has transformed their hearts through this ministry and how blessed they have been in their walk with Christ. Four years ago, when Jackie and Abby were freshman, Estancia huddles consisted of about 20 students meeting in a classroom, and over their four years here, they have been able to watch God expand the ministry to reach 150 students at every huddle!!
At their last huddle of the year, every senior on CdM’s FCA leadership team shared a piece of “parting wisdom” with their peers. It was such a blessing for the seniors to share in this experience as each of them reflected on how FCA has impacted their life over the past four years. The leaders encouraged and challenged the younger students to draw close to God and continue pursuing a relationship with Him. They are truly leaving an incredible legacy on this campus.
FCA does not happen without our student leaders and we are so thankful to the seniors who have faithfully served this ministry and have acted as missionaries on their high school campuses. Please keep them in your prayers as they head to school in the fall!
