The Christian Fellowship Club

The Christian Fellowship club, a faith-based group here at Skyline, is one of the many clubs on campus that want students to hear their mes­sage. The Christian Fellowship’s message is straight forward: open your heart to God, and receive salva­tion from Jesus Christ.

The Christian Fellowship club began here at Skyline College last October. Founded by its president, Roy Gonzalez, the club has done everything it can to teach everyone about Christianity and evangelize anyone who doesn’t follow the Christian faith. As of right now, the club has seven members, but it hopes to gain at least ten to twenty new members as the club progresses through the semester.

Albert Cabrera, church worker and hopeful future pastor, is an integral part of the clubs make-up. Speaking with Cabrera, who is the vice president of the Christian Fel­lowship, I was informed on what the club hopes to accomplish here at Skyline. “Our primary goal is to evangelize people and spread God’s word. We heed an open call by God and understand Christ suffered for all of our sins. There is confusion in this new generation about God. Now is the time to evangelize,” says Cabrera. When asked about how he sees the club growing during the fall semester, “There is a strong calling, even though we are progressing slowly,” Cabrera says, “but will advance with achievement with the Lord.” He explained that typical club meetings consisted of study of both the Old and New Testament, prayer, club announcements, and discussions on Scripture. At the end of each meeting, they end with a group prayer.

In addition to their club, the Christian Fellowship helps out the community through charity work. On holidays, they help feed the homeless, assist the elderly, and lead community prayers. Throughout the year, they also contribute to various communities throughout the Bay Area. Next year, they are hoping to possibly hold an organized prayer here on campus.

President Gonzalez included a Bible verse from the apostle Mark preaching the Gospel in defining the clubs goals. Referencing from the Bible he stated, “Go out and preach the Gospel to the whole world.” In his own words, he added “God has called us to spread the news to ev­eryone–the news of salvation. With that draws many rewards from the Holy Spirit. Change and repentance are very important and forgiveness is followed by salvation.”

Near the end of their meeting, Cabrera ended on a strong note about the current state of our country. “Right now, at this stage, we are fac­ing a heavy crisis. With the economy and all our problems, I believe through prayers of Christians and petitions of every individual, God will hear us. We should pray dearly for President Obama, so that God can give him greater wisdom and strength to guide our country.”

Gonzalez and Cabrera want Skyline students to know that all are welcome to join their club. “Help us spread the word of God,” Cabrera says.
