“Hell doesn’t have to exist for me to serve God!” roared speaker Tony Temple through the speakers of MSY during the first FCA meeting of the year on September 7. MSY was packed with students ready to be filled with the Holy Spirit.
The speaker was Greenwood High School football Coach Tony Temple, the youth pastor at Friendship Worship Center in Abbeville, South Carolina. Worship was lead by John Dukes, Worship Pastor at Capstone Church in Fountain Inn, South Carolina.
Before even reading the scripture passage, Temple got right into deep questions and challenging students to think about their journeys with God. The passage for the night was John 4:1-26, the story of the Samaritan woman meeting Jesus at the well. “Jesus isn’t about a one day experience,” said Temple, “It’s about drinking deeply from the well of God.”
Next week, September 14, will be football night and the speaker will be Perry Tuttle, former Clemson, Atlanta Falcon, Tampa Bay, and Buffalo football player.
FCA meets every Wednesday night at 8:00 in MSY. For more information on FCA, or if you want to get involved, contact Shaun Nibert: firstname.lastname@example.org.
