Look for the date coming in Spring 2016...
Race 1:14 was started in 2009 due to the burden we, the FCA staff, had for the female athletes we were working alongside. Girl after girl was struggling with their identity as a female, as an athlete, and as a daughter of God. We saw this identity crisis leading to issues such as eating disorders, cutting, and lifestyle choices. With each story, it broke our hearts a little bit more, thus Race 1:14 was born.
Race 1:14 is based on the verse John 1:14, "The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the One and Only who came from the father, full of grace and truth." We want these girls to understand the TRUTH of who God says they are and through the GRACE of Jesus Christ, no matter what they have done or where they are coming from, God loves them!
Race 1:14 started out with an event that is held at Crossings Community Church. This is a state-wide event where girls ages 12-18 come together for one night to hear from college athletes, college coaches, FCA staff, and more about where their identity come from: Christ! It is an amazing night! This years event.....
We are very excited to announce that we are introducing our RACE 1:14 devotion/discussion guide for groups. This is a 7 week series of devotions, with questions, that we have created for groups of girls to go through leading up to the Race 1:14 event. If you are interested in leading a group of girls through this series please contact us.
