Lufkin High School’s chapter of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes will offer students and faculty the opportunity to participate in See You At The Pole at 7:15 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 25.

See You At The Pole is an annual international event at which students, teachers and staff have the opportunity to join around their school’s flagpole and pray together about the school year ahead.

Lufkin High School Coach Zek Fancher, one of the sponsors, described it as “an opportunity to get together and fellowship in the Lord.”

Coach Jerri Kay Boyd, another of the sponsors, said, “It is hosted by FCA, but we want all students, staff, everybody to be a part of it.”

The sponsors said they would like to see a great number of students attend the event to pray for this school year. No one is required to pray out loud, but everyone’s presence is requested.

Fancher, quoting scripture, said, “When two or more are gathered in His name, there He shall be also.”
