Ministry and Fellowship

  • Fellowship of Christian Athletes

    fcaThe Fellowship of Christian Athletes is an officially recognized club in middle schools, high schools and colleges across America. Its purpose is “to present to athletes, to coaches, and to all whom they influence the challenge and adventure of receiving Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, serving Him in their relationships and in the fellowship of the church.”

    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:

    Word UP
    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.

    P.T. Groups
    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.

    Prayer Squad
    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.

  • Summer Mission Trip

    Mission Trip 5SCA offers short term mission trip opportunities through Go Missions to share the love of God to the Dominican Republic. The purpose of such a trip is in obedience to the Great Commission (Matt. 28:19-20) and in compassion for those who are not in a saving relationship with Jesus Christ. For five years, SCA students, parents, and tutors have partnered with the full-time missionaries and locals of the Dominican Republic to bring the Word of God to unbelievers. Ministries to the community there have included: working construction, leading a children’s ministry, hosting a basketball camp, and feeding children in nutrition centers. Through these mission trips, students, parents, and tutors learn what it means to participate in God’s mission through the Body of Christ as well as gain first hand experience of a third world country.

     

    Going

    • Students and parents discuss and pray about joining a short-term mission team.
    • Watch the website and emails for upcoming missions meeting.
    • Discuss interest with the office staff and team leader.

    Praying

    • For God to impact the people of the Dominican Republic through these trips.
    • For those who are going on the trip to be bold in their proclamation of the gospel.
    • For the details of the trip to honor God from planning, executing, to returning home.

    Giving

    • A tax deductible financial donation can be sent to the office written out to SCA with mission trip on the memo line.
    • All donations will be allotted for the entire team, unless otherwise indicated in the memo line.

    “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10
