“I LOVE IT!” said Julie Luu, a sophomore, about Tuscarora’s Christian Fellowship Club. The club isn’t just about the Bible or how to follow it. Meeting in the choir room might be a little bit weird for some kids who are not in choir, but you’re not going only to see your friend, you’re going to keep that connection with God. The Group has close to 40 dedicated members who meet to worship God.
CFC meets every Tuesday unless otherwise noted in their Facebook page (Tuscarora Christian Fellowship Club.) The club was originally started by Jhavi M. Schatz, a junior. “[I] came up with the idea for a club after winter camp,” said Jhavi. He said that he wanted to start a Christian club, and soon the news passed around from friend to friend. The group thrived with time, and the number of kids that come every Tuesday grows more and more, something every member is proud of.
“I think it’s been great so far and I love starting my day with it,” said sophomore Kelly Wright. The kids who go to the Bible group have to wake up early in order to be at school by 8:15a.m. Of course, most teenagers would rather sleep than stay awake to go to school, but this group of kids wakes up early to get that little extra something to start their day.
“Everyone is really friendly,” said Wright. Other members are also welcoming. Darcy Pierce, a sophomore, says, “Come [to the club] if you just started to believe in God or you’ve gone to church all your life.”  Member Julie Luu states, “It’s a great way to have a strong Christian fellowship with other Christians in our school!” Members agreed that the club was a great way to keep that connection with God and meet people who can help you grow in the faith. “It’s a fun experience even if you’re not a Christian,” said senior Amanda Armstrong.
“[I’ve been there since] the first day it opened. I like it and I hope it grows,” said sophomore Vanessa Aziz. People within the group want to make it better. They have great ideas to expand CFC, such as fliers, reaching out and inviting friends who are both Christians and non-Christians, and having a bake sale to make the group known, and also to save some money for future things that they would like to do or plan.
