Chanhassen-Chaska Fellowship of Christian Athletes Make a Difference
Meeting once a week, the Chanhassen-Chaska Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) come up with new ways to help their community. Over 200 students, from grades 9 through seniors take part in these helpful efforts to make sure that they are making an impact, both through their church and schools.
The FCA is ran by students from both Chanhassen and Chaska high schools. Coaches and parents also lend a helping hand. The interdenominational student organization celebrates in worship together on a weekly basis.
Although, the FCA was started decades ago, it started back up again in full force, 2009. A new flock of leaders have arrived from each high school, the captains include: Morgan Jensen and Becca Ostby of Chaska, as well as Liebeg and Joey Witthus from Chanhassen.
At the meetings, students are asked to bring food items and toilet paper to donate, to the local shelters. They also plan about 10 to 12 community service projects per year. With the growth in social media, they have been able to expand their numbers quickly. The Fellowship of Christian Athletes plan on meeting on Monday, November 11th and the 25th, from 7 to 8:30p.m. at the Chaska Community Center.
Watching youth grow into responsible adults is a great representation of this generation. With so many negative things happening in the world, it is good to know there are still groups getting together to do what they can each day.
