Each year at the FCHS Christmas Banquet we do something nicer and end with something more fun and this year was no excpetion. We all dress to the nines and have a blast!
The night kicked off with a delicious dinner at Benihana’s and ended with some glow in the dark monster mini golf.
The food at Benihana's was incredible and the chefs were hilarious. From trying to catch rice balls in our mouth to eating some of the most delicious chicken and steak, dinner was amazing. Mini golf was also a great time! We had the whole place to ourselves and we were able to just have fun! We took goofy pictures and got some hole in ones.
My favorite part of banquet is what you do before and after. Getting ready and preparing for a great night, traveling with friends, fun activities you choose to do after, and of course pictures. Banquet is always a favorite and a night to never forget.
For the first time FCS Jr/Sr High School participated in Giving Tuesday by giving back! On Friday November 30th , FCS Gave Back when our unity groups volunteered throughout the Yuba City/Marysville community. This was a great opportunity for our student’s to give voluntarily of their time and energy in serving other organizations.
Our senior class remained on campus and hosted lunch and a rally for the Ibaraki Japanese Christian School allowing two of our seniors to share their testimony. The junior girls baked desserts and delivered them to the local police station and fire station while our sophomores volunteered at Share the Love food pantry and The Point Church in Marysville. Our freshman class helped clean the grounds at a local Head Start program and visited the Hovlid Care Center for seniors.
Our Jr High boys volunteered at the Twin City Rescue Mission while our girls made Christmas cards and gifts for another local nursing home. The Jr. High also collected donations for the Camp Fire victims while making cards and delivering items.
Overall our students capitalized on this opportunity to give of themselves and serve others. A big thank you goes out to all of our teachers who organized and participated in this years FCS Gives Back.
Blessings on all who donated to the KCRA 3 Kids Can Food Drive. We were able to collect 1629 cans and food items to donated to the Yuba Sutter Salvation Army for distribution to those in need in our community. When all was said and done, the Kindergarten class (pictured) brought in the most cans – 370! Great job everyone!
Participation in the Food Drive helps to grow a heart of compassion in our students and think of others. Faith Christian School strives to be do-ers of the Word and intentionally "serve one another in love."
