If you walk into the cheer gym after school during the Varsity Cheer team’s practice you will see a special sight….sophomore Samantha Moore practicing with her squad. Samantha began cheering when she was 5 years old. She cheered off and on until Jr. High and has been cheering ever since. According to Samantha one of the best parts of being a Varsity cheerleader is having so many older girls around to be role models for her. It also help that cheer is a fun activity after school be excited about.
On Monday nights you will find Samantha on the Houston Christian campus participating in Discipleship Groups. Discipleship Groups (known to Houston Christian students as ‘D-Groups’) is an opportunity for underclassmen to be mentored by upperclassmen as they walk through the Bible together. Samantha’s favorite part of D-Groups is the opportunity each week to set aside thoughts of school and homework and having time to talk about her spiritual life with her classmates.
Attending Houston Christian is a family affair as her brother, Cameron, graduated from Houston Christian in May ‘12. Upon graduating from High School, Samantha hopes to become a pediatrician.
Samantha attends the West campus of Second Baptist Church in Katy.
Samantha’s favorite scripture is, “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, NIV.
