FCA Home Team Celebration Dinner

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 Tuesday, 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 John Smoltz as FCA’s Key notespeaker for our 2019 event! John is an incredible Christian athlete who knows how to win! ”says David Grusnick, Director of our local FCA.

John Smoltz, a key member of the 1995 World Champion Braves, is the only pitcher in MLB history to record at least 200 wins and 150 saves.

He spent the first 20 years of his 21-year career with Atlanta before finishing with the Red Sox and Cardinals in 2009. John Smoltz is known as one of the greatest postseason pitchers in MLB history with a lifetime record of 15-4 and 2.67 ERA and holds a career 2.47 ERA in eight WorldSeries games pitched, including 52 strikeouts in 51 innings. John Smoltz has the most strikeouts in postseason history (199) the second most postseason wins (15) and was the winner of the 1992 NLCS MVP award.

His classic duel against the Twins’ Jack Morris in Game 7 of the 1991 World Series was ranked as second greatest game of the last 50 years.

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 NorthwestGeorgia 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.
