Our Home Team Celebration Dinner will benefit the Whitfield/Murray Co. FCA Ministry, directed by Dave Grusnick. This year's banquet will be held on Thursday, March 26 at 6:30 PM at the Dalton Trade and Convention Center. Thank you to all our "Home Team" partners who made this possible through your generous gifts of encouragement! Our local FCA staff currently has over 1900 students meeting weekly through FCA in 15 schools in Murray and Whitfield counties!
"We are so excited to welcome Terrell Owens as FCA’s Keynote speaker for our 2019 event! “TO”, a six-time Pro Bowler, is known as being a vital part of the San Francisco 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys, Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals from 1996 through 2010. The veteran wide-receiver was the first to score a touchdown in seven straight “Monday Night Football” games and was also the second NFL player to record five seasons with 13 or more touchdowns. Born in Alexander City, Al, “TO” played college ball @ UTC.
While Owens admits that he may have a small window of time before officially retiring from the NFL, he maintained that “my faith in God will see me through.”
"I don't care how often he comes to town, the kids want an autograph - even if they already have a bunch of them at home," said Fred Norris, director of the Alexander City Housing Authority Youth and Adult Services Center. Norris also said, "This is where T.O.comes in the summer to talk to kids about staying in school and the dangers of alcohol, drugs and teen pregnancy. The T.O. we see is a quiet, laid-back individual."
We will also have testimonies from local athletes and coaches. Come join us for a great meal,wonderful fellowship and help us to continue and expand the influence of FCA in the Northwest Georgia area.
Over the past several years, our Home Team Celebration has provided over 50% of the resources needed for FCA to minister to all our schools in Whitfield and Murray Counties. FCA is clearly an efficient and effective platform to reach our young people with the challenge and adventure of receiving Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
We will also spotlight several local athletes and coaches. We have wonderful blessings to share and would be deeply grateful for your attendance!
