On August 17th, after a thrilling first week of school, LCA held its first FNL of the year. It was a fun and exciting evening with many activities ranging from playing volleyball and basketball to hanging out with friends.
Nouwen Craft and Noah Cropper both led FNL with noteworthy messages.
Nouwen spoke about carrying expectations into this school year and realizing that while God’s plans may not meet those expectations, that doesn’t mean that He is not good. Her example of this was when she ran over an armadillo on the first day of school and later people got upset with her on the road.
Noah’s message reminded us not to run away from our problems like how Hagar did in Genesis 16. His example of this was when he broke a hammock at FNL his freshman year and ran into the woods.
Finally, the night ended in powerful worship music from Katelynn Stoltzfuz, Allie Stokes, and Matthew Simmons. It was a good way to start FNL and a great way to end the first week of school. And there are many more FNLs to look forward to going into this year.
