Mississippi Glowing For Christ

    Athletes from Water Valley High School’s Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FAC) carried the cross from the Calhoun County line on Hwy. 330 to the Coffeeville Courthouse Monday evening. The project, Mississippi Glowing For Christ, is a joint effort between Mission Mississippi and FCA to carry the cross on an 82-day journey across all 82 counties in Mississippi. The project marks the 20th anniversary of Mission Mississippi, an organization that promotes racial reconciliation.
