The lawn at Thomson-McDuffie Middle School turned into a place of worship Tuesday as 300 people gathered to hear a local Christian band and receive words of inspiration from a former football player.
During the hour and one-half long community rally, families learned that the hope of what the keynote speaker termed as “strange, weird people” who are called Christians has never been in the stability of the nation. The hope of Christians is in the presence of God who gave the gift of Jesus Christ, said rally speaker Derrick Moore.
Moore, a former player in the National Football League who now is chaplain for the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, provided those words of inspiration to the community. The rally was held under the auspices of the school’s Fellowship of Christian Athletes to prepare for the national See You At The Pole Day on Wednesday.
