See You At The Cross | Fix Our Eyes

Posted by Brittney Byrd on Thu, Sep 21, 2017 @ 10:38 AM


Fix our eyes is the theme of this year's See You At The Pole™ event, taken from Hebrews 12:2: fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.


Background of SYATP

What began in 1990 in Texas with a small group of students, has now grown to millions praying across the world on the fourth Wednesday of September. According to the websiteSee You at the Pole is about students "uniting themselves in prayer before God interceding for their generation." 

All around the globe, in every time zone, students will be gathering at their flag poles, praying for their school, friends, families, churches and communities. SYATP also falls within the Global Week of Student Prayer (Sunday, Sept. 24 - Saturday, Sept. 30). The Global Week of Student Prayer encourages students to find new and unique ways, places, and times to pray throughout the week. 

Why Does FBCA Not Meet at the Flag Pole? 

As an independent Christian school, the Fort Bend Christian Academy community has the opportunity to meet at the cross, as opposed to the flag pole, on campus. The FBCA cross is located outside in between the high school and elementary school campus. 

Fort Bend Christian Academy gives students the opportunity to accept, the encouragement to emulate, and the challenge to proclaim Christ. We exist to glorify God through excellence in college-preparatory Christian education and to equip students to thrive spiritually, academically, socially and physically. You're invited to visit our campuses and discover the FBCA difference for yourself!
