Fields of Faith connects students from area schools
Fields of Faith returned to Newton Field Wednesday night. Graham High School hosted the 2020 Fellowship of Christian Athletes Fields of Faith which brought students from area schools together to listen to Christian music and hear testimony from their peers.
Over 100 from Albany, Breckenridge, Bryson, Mineral Wells, Newcastle, Olney, Perrin-Whitt and Weatherford sat in the visitor’s stands this year while students from Graham sat on the home side. The event was livestreamed on Facebook this year for students who could not attend.
Jaden Jacoba, Olney, was the first student speaker of the night. She spoke on returning to her faith after struggling emotionally over the summer. Kamryn Staggs, Perrin-Whitt, read her favorite bible verse, 1 Timothy 4:12. Staggs said it was relatable to her as a coach’s child. Salvador Mendez, Graham, read from John 16:33. Mendez gave a motivational message telling his peers that they are never alone. Amy Burch, Newcastle, was the final student speaker of the night. Burch read Mark 4:38 and told a story from the Book of Job. She spoke on her struggles in faith in the loss of a friend. Kenny Rawls from First Baptist Church in Hamlin gave a sermon to close out the night.
