A Video Message From Rye
Dear FCA Family,
As you are aware, there are efforts underway nationally and globally to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Last week, cases were identified in Ohio, which has heightened conversation about the possibility of local "community spread". Governor DeWine issued an order banning all gatherings of 100+ for at least the next 3 weeks.
Furthermore, many companies have already taken action or are considering policies to limit travel, meetings and non-essential gatherings - especially of more than 20-100 people.
We have been equipped for moments like this. The FCA Staff will continue to serve Coaches and Athletes via phone calls, email, texting, virtual meetings and social media. Also, FCA developed FCAVirtual.org, an online tool that easily puts resources and lessons into the hands of Coaches and Athletes.
We will also volunteer where we can as some schools have listed opportunities to do so. Our staff will be in in prayer, invoking the power of The Holy Spirit and using the Word of God.
God has blessed us. What an opportunity this is to minister to, serve the community and be prayer warriors. Our focus is to help others and to share the hope we have in Jesus Christ with people when and wherever we can.
We ask that you pray for the children who may have no place to go with school cancelled, the elderly who could be isolated from this crisis, and the men and women whose income has been slashed with events canceled.
Lastly, please be in prayer for Governor Mike DeWine, Lt Governor Jon Husted, and Ohio Dept. of Health Director Amy Acton as they lead our state through this crisis.
Thank you for your support of and investment in Fellowship of Christian Athletes. We appreciate your understanding and your ongoing support.
If you should have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly at 614-354-9847 or, via email at email@example.com.
