41 Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. 42 But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a few cents.
43 Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. 44 They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything—all she had to live on.”
We believe that the principles and lessons learned in the classroom, at home, and through the local church, can be put into practice through athletics. A microcosm of society, athletics allows the student to develop and use his or her God given ability to glorify God. Because the arena of competition is usually surrounded with pressure, the athlete is tested and the true character is revealed. Consequently, the opportunity for character growth readily presents itself through athletic competition. Therefore, athletics at Fairfield Christian Academy is considered an integral part of a student athlete's secondary curriculum.
