Fellowship of Christian Athletes
Sayers Classical Academy offers a FCA club (called a “huddle”) for logic and rhetoric stage students which includes five arenas where students utilize the platform of athletics to serve Christ:
Every other Tuesday morning, before school, all fifth through twelfth grade students are invited from 7:30-7:50 am to study God’s Word and pray.
At SCA, P.T. stands for “personal training” (in both the athletic and spiritual senses), and it also stands for “Paul and Timothy”, a powerful disciple team in the New Testament. The “Pauls” (Rhetoric students) team up with and encourage their “Timothys” (Logic students) on a weekly basis through prayer, Bible study, and support. P.T. groups meet on the alternate Tuesday mornings before school and provide incredible opportunities for “relational discipleship.”
Team Meeting Squad
Once each month, during lunch, the FCA leadership team is responsible to plan a meeting for the logic & rhetoric student body in which they have with guest speakers, give personal testimonies, incorporate music, and use creative skits and announcements to unify and encourage those in attendance.
FCA encourages students to build in “prayer power” by providing leadership for See You at the Pole each fall and the National Day of Prayer Program each spring.
FCA Area Involvement
Each year we encourage our students to be involved with the FCA ministry outside Sayers Classical Academy. This includes attending the regional Leadership Training each fall, the area SuperBOWL event each winter, the Great Louisville Superstars Competition each spring, and our national FCA Leadership Camp each summer.
