If you are a graduate of FBCS, a previous attender of FBCS, or a parent or friend of a previous FBCS student and want to stay connected, then you are on the right page! We have a few annual events in which you can be involved — come and meet with the Alumni & Friends of Faith from the past and present!
Our first annual Alumni event of the year is the “Alumni & Friends Gym Night.” We always have a good turnout of alumni to play both volleyball and basketball games. Spouses are also welcome to participate! The Booster Club plays a great role on Alumni Night when they feed us as well! Our next gym night will take place on Saturday, January 2, 2016 at 5 p.m. We hope you can make it and bring the family too!
Our second annual Alumni event is the “Alumni & Friends Picnic.” This family event is held at the Mineral Springs Park in Pekin on Saturday, July 18, 2015 from 11-3 p.m. Everyone brings a side dish or dessert and a 2 liter. The Booster Club provides the hot dogs and burgers and all the paper goods. We take over the Royal Avenue Shelter and plan to have some fun on baseball diamond #1 playing group kickball! You won’t want to miss this one!
FaithFest, 0ur school carnival, takes will take place on Friday, April 29, 2016! This huge event will still be open to the community, and that means Alumni & Friends too! It is so exciting to see our alumni and neighbors get a ‘snapshot’ of our ministry. Traditionally, we have junior and senior high classes sponsor booths with games and food to help their class accounts be prepared for their Senior trip, as well as the school’s general fund. We also open up the Cafeteria to local vendors to showcase their products and talents. Booth rental fees benefit Eternal Vision, the school’s endowment fund. The room included vendors such as Mary Kay, Scentsy, Lia Sophia, and Miche Bags. If you are interested in showcasing your business at the Vendor Fair, contact one of our alumni, Christa Roland, (’93) through the school office.
If you aren’t currently receiving our updates via email or postcard in the mail, we might not have your contact information confirmed! Please get in touch with the school office at 309-347-6178 with your information and we’ll be sure to keep you posted. We hope you will be able to attend at least one of our alumni events a year!
We have a Facebook group, Faith Baptist Christian School Alumni & Friends, page you can join any time for these notifications as well!
