A Message from Steve Sanders, Metro Cleveland FCA Director



It's easy for us to give someone in need change out of pocket or from the cup holder of our vehicle. We feel like we're doing a good deed. In many cases, we are! That change may help someone eat for a day or provide shelter for a night. 

But there's a different form of change we can all provide. I'm not talking about changing the world or solving all of its problems. The kind of change I'm talking about starts on the inside. It starts with each of us individually. We have to be the change we want to see in the world. When begin to examine our own hearts, we are making change, starting with ourselves. 


"Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, 
just as God in Christ also has forgiven you."  
Ephesians 4:32 NASB




















You can change a life!!!
You can make an impact by helping to supply Bibles to Greater Cleveland Huddle groups!
Rocky River HS

This is a busy and exciting time for FCA and we want
YOU to be a part of it! The
 end of August marks the end of summer break and the beginning of a new school year.  As the school begins so do the FCA campus/team huddle groups. These groups meet not only to encourage and strengthen each other in their Christian lives but to reach out to others in the student body. Together we can make a difference by helping to equip these groups with Bibles.

Currently there are FCA groups in over 40 local middle schools and high schools. There are also at least half a dozen more in the process of getting started for the 2017/18 school year. We are increasing our presence in Greater Cleveland but that means that the need increases.

Together we can help put Bibles into the hands of students across Greater Cleveland!

Contact our office at pmatejka@fca.org if you would like to sponsor a school.
