Children First: School and Faith Mix

A group of Newton County High School students say faith can be put into action within the walls of a public school.

The group, called SHINE, which stands for "Serving Him in Never-Ending Excitement,” is a Christian club that meets at Newton County High School for prayer, devotionals and fellowship.

It has grown from less than 10 members not long ago to more than 300 members now.

The group's members say they want other schools to know that clubs like theirs are totally legal.

"God can be in our schools, and we can do this. We can pray. We can meet," said Michael Aycox, a junior at Newton County High.

The group meets each week in the cafeteria during school hours.
