Every Wednesday night, 8pm-9pm, at Panera Bread in Blacksburg, the high school youth get together for some fellowship time and bible study! We are currently studying a book called, "Love Does" and pairing it with a story of love from the Bible. We centrally focus on Jesus' call for unconditional (agape) love for one's neighbor.

Let no one despise your youth, but set an example for them in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith & in pureness.

Service Projects
Our youth leadership team works to develop one project per month that serves our community. All youth are invited to these specified "Service Sundays" and engage in the projects! In addition to this, we take a week long mission trip every summer!
One Sunday per month, the youth have a Service Sunday where we meet for a couple of hours to complete a service project for our community! All of our projects are planned and led by the youth, with some of our adult leaders assisting!
We have a large team of adult leaders - leading our morning gatherings, our youth group small groups, our service projects, and our trips/events! We have a running "Love Our Leaders" video series highlighting these incredible people!

Join our summer mission trip

Rising 7th graders through graduating seniors are invited to join us on our summer mission trip to the Chesapeake Bay! We will spend the week lodging at Camp Occahannock on the Bay - enjoying meals together, a canoe trip, team building games, and nightly worship. Each day we will be travelling to a town on the Bay with the Chesapeake Housing Mission to complete a building project. Our last day (our "fun" day) will be spent visiting the Assateague and Chincoteague Islands, seeing the wild ponies, and stopping by the Island Creamery!
