FCAs across Brevard collide at special event

Members of Fellowship of Christian Athletes represented the school by participating in the anticipated Collision event Sunday night. Hundreds of club members from all across Brevard County met at Melbourne High School for a time of praise, fellowship and studying from the Bible.

“Collision is basically a giant youth group,” senior Melinda Silaghi said. “It starts with games and continues with worship and a message. It concludes with a call to anyone who wants to accept Christ into their lives as their personal Lord and Savior.”

Each Collision event focuses on a different topic from the Bible and teaches the students of Brevard County how to live their lives for the Lord.

“I went because I love getting together with a bunch of other people that love Jesus and want to praise him,” Silaghi said. “It boosts my faith and acts as a mini-revival for myself. On Sunday we learned about John Chapter 4, which tells the story of the Samaritan woman at the well. The speaker talked about how sometimes we don’t understand why God places us somewhere, but we just need to trust him and obey him.”

Silaghi was not the only student involved in Fellowship of Christian Athletes who benefitted from the event. Sophomore Kyle Caudill expressed his enthusiasm about Sunday’s event.

“I enjoyed the atmosphere,” Caudill said. “The devotion to God of everyone involved was remarkably apparent.”

The next Collision conference is set for Jan. 29 at 6:30 p.m. in the Melbourne High School gymnasium. All students are invited to attend.
