Who is the Christian Fellowship Club?

By Laura Chavez

The Christian Fellowship Club (CFC) was first established in 2011 by a small number of students at Tuscarora High School. Today, seniors Ryan Butterfield and Olivia Corso are co-presidents of the CFC. Butterfield said the club’s main purpose is to establish “a time for Christians to get together and reach out to other students.”

The CFC meets every Tuesday morning in the choir room at 8:15 a.m. Its routine consists of worship, teaching, and prayer. During worship, the club has different members play songs and instruments, all in an effort to worship and give thanks to the Lord.

Vanessa Aziz, a senior and member of CFC who transferred to Tuscarora, described her experience joining the club as “a great transition from private schools.” Aziz said, “It is hard to find a place where you can share your beliefs, but the CFC is definitely welcoming to everyone.”

Butterfield and Corso also shared that “we welcome all denominations. We want this to be an opportunity for Tuscarora students to be united in their love for Christ.”

Some events the CFC hopes to hold in the future are festivities and fundraising events. Before Thanksgiving break, the club hosted an event called “Morning of Worship,” where it had a pastor from a local church come and speak.

The CFC looks forward to having other guest speakers, like members from the local Fellowship of Christian Athletes, a group the CFC sometimes works closely with.

The CFC has a Facebook page titled “The Christian Fellowship Club of Tuscarora High School” and encourages students to visit their page in order to find information about the club and upcoming events. The CFC is always open to new members, and students are welcome to come for prayer every Tuesday morning in the choir room.
