Youth News

Welcome to the Virginia State Fair!  The Youth will be making an outing to the fair on Sunday, October 7th, immediately following the Worship Service.  The next day is a student holiday off from school.  We will enjoy a full day of fellowship and fun at the fair.  They are offering reduced rates now, so if you are interested in going, please sign up with B.J. by August 30th.  The cost will only be $5 per person.  Each youth should plan on bringing extra money with them for food/vendor purchases.  As always, we can use some chaperones to help!

The Youth Fall Retreat is right around the corner from October 19-21 in Crozet, VA at the Misty Mountain Camp Resort.  We have several cabin and tent spaces reserved.  This is a great trip that is always one of our more popular events of the year.  The adult chaperones usually have just as much fun as our Youth.  Let B.J. know if you plan to attend.

Ignite Men’s Impact Weekend Conference

Attention Men of the Church! – Imagine joining 10,000 men—fathers, sons, brothers, seekers and Christ-followers—coming together to worship God and learn more about the life of true adventure He intends for us. Even more, imagine a two-day event packed full of workshops, exhibits, and fun around the stuff that men love: hunting, fishing, football, motorcycles, racing, extreme sports, and other outdoor activities—featuring some of the leading experts in the world.

Welcome to Ignite Men’s Impact Weekend Conference! After years of perfecting our men’s impact weekend, we have landed on a unique format that helps men align their everyday passions with God’s eternal purpose. We are here to take on the everyday challenges that men face—a godless culture, fatherlessness, broken relationships, and the lack of male leadership in the Church. This ground- breaking, extreme weekend is scheduled for March 15-16, 2019 at Thomas Road Baptist Church in Lynchburg, Virginia. Tickets are at its cheapest price right now at $54.  They will go up in price in a couple of months.  In addition, hotel rooms are disappearing fast in the Lynchburg area.  We have had folks go to this conference the last few years and it is an awesome experience.

Joining the stage this year will be Jeff Foxworthy, Dennis Swanberg, Rick Rigsby, Jon Gordon, and James MacDonald, along with more yet to be announced.  If you are interested in going on this wonderful conference, please let B.J. know.
