Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) is Dunlap High School’s largest student run club, which meets every club day in Amanda Young’s room, N20.

 

The club has approximately 120 members and is sponsored by Mrs. Young.

 

Mallorie Gray, a senior club leader, defined FCA as, “An organization to see the world transformed by Jesus Christ through the influence of athletes and students all over America.”

 

“Anyone and everyone who wants to can join the club,” says senior co-president Hannah Milam, “You can be just an athlete, just a Christian, both or neither. We want you. We want community.”

 

Milam explains the FCA leaders are trying to organize activities outside of club period as well. Past outside events have included See You at the Pole, fall/spring movie night, Winter Jam, and a Bradley basketball game.

 

When asked if food is normally provided during club periods, Gray reported, “Yes, we always have food.” Store bought brownies and cookies are typically the go-to snack for the club.

 

Gray described the flow of a typical club session to be as follows: a snack, opening prayer, short message, an occasional game and a closing prayer.

 

To anyone who may be thinking of joining FCA, Milam wanted to clarify: “God says you’re always welcome here.”
