Have you ever wonder what it is like to be at a junior high FCA huddle? Check out all of the energy, excitement, and encouragement that happens when you get a bunch of jr. high students crowded into a classroom with friends, pizza, games, and a speaker who wants to share the love of Christ. It is pretty awesome.
Hula Hoop racing is always a great way to start off huddle. The winners were pretty excited to claim their prize (first in line for pizza!)
This week, the students at Ensign Intermediate School had the opportunity to hear from USC soccer and lacrosse star Elizabeth Eddy. She shared about the hard work and big faith it has taken to accomplish her dream of becoming a professional soccer player. She challenged the students to pursue their passions while keeping Christ at the center of their lives.
Prodigal Church pastor Nicole Rowan came to TeWinkle Middle School to empower the students to stand strong in their faith and to stand together as a community of believers on their campus. She encouraged them with 1 Timothy 4:12, “don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity.”
Corona del Mar Middle School students were captivated by Shalom Bako’s testimony. Shalom grew up playing soccer in Nigeria before moving to the United States and pursuing his dream of playing professional soccer. He shared that, even though his dream came true, Christ was not at the center of his life and he quickly realized something was missing. Shalom reminded the students, “no matter what you are going through, good things and bad, all those things are part of your journey so that God can show you He has a plan and purpose for your life.”
Daniel Orduna is the Watermark Church pastor known to some students as “Starbucks Man” because he mobilizes students to pass out coffee to teachers before their morning meetings.
