Combined Bible Study---Modesty and Encouragement Workshop!

The ladies usually have our Bible Study on Sunday nights and we dive into the Word with our sisters in Christ.  This week we did something a little different and invited the guys to come fellowship with us! We wrote letters to each other about the things we like about our Brothers and Sisters and helped each other out when it comes to temptation!  God did awesome works once again---He never ceases to amaze me!  He has put the most incredible group of people in my life at St. Edward's!

Below are video recording of the letters we wrote to each other:

God Bless and have an amazing week glorifying God in everything you do!

We began our quest for the coveted Topper Cup with the Kickball tournament to start off SEU Homecoming Week 2011.  Our organization started off with a win and are hoping for many more in the competitions throughout the week!

STV- Case Keenum

Rave and Worship!

Tonight we had another successful jam session with our amazing Praise and Worship Band!  Everything was acoustic and the Lord was definitely at work with our Huddle! We welcomed Adrian Thomas into our family, as Jake Ridley will no longer be our Area Representative.  We are so excited to get to work with Adrian and get to know him better!  God has amazing works in store for our organization.  Have a great week glorifying the Lord in everything you do!

"Don't worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanskgiving, let your requests be made known to God." -Philippians 4:6

God Bless,

P.S. This is one of the many amazing songs sung tonight!

What Do I Know of Holy-Addison Road

My name is Meredith Bard, an avid member and leader of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes at St. Edward’s University.  I am a junior majoring in Communication with specialization in Media Arts and Broadcast Journalism.  I play volleyball on the Hilltop, #15, and love every moment of it! Fear the Goat!
FCA has been an important part of my life since my middle school days in El Campo, Texas.  FCA is a place where Christians, ordinary people like you and me, can come together in fellowship and glorify our Heavenly Father.  St. Edward’s FCA is a unique experience for all.  A common misconception is that you must be an athlete to participate.  If that’s what you think--wrong!  Everyone is invited and welcome to participate.  You don’t have to be an athlete or a devout Christian to enjoy spending time with an amazing group of people! 

We are the only Christian organization sponsored by student-life on campus.  We meet every Wednesday evening for a fun time--games like Ultimate Frisbee, Dodge Ball, Human Tic-Tac Toe, Line Soccer, and much more.  After games we have a message led by members of our leadership team.   Once a month we rock out with our cross out!  We gather for Praise and Worship led by a band of some of our fellow St. Edward’s peers that are talented musicians.  If you want to get to know God on a more personal level, join us for Men’s and Women’s Bible Studies where we gather with others to dive into God’s Word.  Outside of our organized meetings, we hang out at game nights and other events like bowling to get to know each other better.  Our FCA is a great place to make friends for a lifetime.  Don’t be intimidated if you walk into a group of 30 to 40 college kids running around like crazy playing strange games.  Give us a chance and I can almost guarantee you will be coming back the next week!

Our mission is to share the Light of Christ on St. Edward’s campus and throughout Austin.  We are involved with the St. Edward’s community and participate in community service projects around the Austin area.  Last semester, we mulched the trees and greenery at Zilker Park and this semester we are participating in Teeny Topper Olympics, Crop Walk, The Big Event, and are pairing with Campus Ministry to sponsor Christian Unity week on campus. 

As a member of Greater Austin FCA, every spring semester many of our members participate in FCA College Advance--a gathering of FCA Huddles from many Texas universities for one amazing weekend!  It is a great experience and you’ll get to meet some of Texas’ most well-known athletes.  Although you may watch them on ESPN, they are normal people who love God just like you and me!
This blog will keep you up to date with events going on with St. Edward’s FCA as well as other blog links and resources about FCA, Christianity, and athletics.
Interested in this awesome organization?  Stay tuned for more posts to see what we are up to, or better yet, take a study break and come visit us this Wednesday at 8:00 p.m. in the Recreation and Convocation Center!
Your Sister in Christ,
