Growing together.

Whoever you are, wherever you're from, you are welcome here.

We value student's relationships within the small group setting of a classroom. As families commit to attending  service every week, students can relate to their leader and other familiar faces in their group where relationships can form and grow.

Youth advance    NOV. 11-13

Our teens are going to the Wheeling WV site.

belpre Youth rally   Nov. 18-20

It is that time of year again! We are very excited about the 2022 Belpre Youth Rally!  It will be November 18th – 20th at the Belpre Church of Christ. Our start time on Friday night is 8pm and on Saturday morning it is 9:30am. A full schedule will be posted closer to the event. 
Our theme this year is “Move Over.” We will be focusing on making room for God and each other individually and as a group. This will cover a variety of topics, Bible verses and stories and will be geared toward very relevant issues and contexts of the lives of your students and your youth group. Bryan Crum, Matt Bortell and some of the other Lost-N-Found members will be leading our worship this year. Our own Michael Rhodes will be speaking. Michael has over twenty years of ministry experience with most of that being in youth ministry. He has done ministry all over the US and spoken at various events and churches. Additionally, we have some fun interactive games and entertainment that will involve individuals and your whole group. Don’t worry, introverts have been considered in this planning and will be able to remain introverted. 😊
Here are some VERY important things that you need to know:
1.    Housing: We are still not comfortable asking our members to house students. After hosting the rally for free last year (for those getting a hotel) we have depleted our rally account. So, we need you to arrange housing for your group. There are plenty of hotels in Parkersburg and Athens is only 20-30 minutes away depending on the hotel. If costs will keep you from attending the rally, please contact me for arrangements. 
2.    We have, however cut down on some costs this year in order to continue to help. The cost for chaperons is $15. The cost per student is $25 if registration is received by November 10th.
3.    This youth rally is for 7th -12th grade and chaperons. If your youth group is 6-12th grade we will allow your 6th graders to attend. 
 Registration is online this year and opens October 17th.

Please spread the word about the Belpre Youth Rally and keep it in your prayers. We are in continual prayer about this event. We believe that God will bless your students and also the youth workers and volunteers that attend. We serve a God of wonders and we look forward to what He will teach us that weekend! 
In Christ,  
 The BYR Team          

winterfest @ gatlinburg   feb. 17-19

Winterfest is a weekend retreat going on for 37 years now. This retreat is geared toward middle and high school teens. This particular Winterfest is attended primarily by teens from acappella churches of Christ, although we have groups from several different fellowships that come back each year. We use teachers from our fellowship to teach and encourage teens in their walk with God. This weekend is geared toward discipleship. The teachers and guests that come use real life stories, drama, music and scripture to make the Christian life come alive to the teens involved. Our acappella praise and worship times are uplifting and engaging. We have contemporary Christian concerts at our events that are supplemental to the weekend (we have had Jars of Clay, Third Day, Newsboys, Audio A, Supertones, Tait, to name a few). Believing that the Christian life can be very joyful, we bring in the best Christian entertainers we can find to challenge teens with their lifestyle and their attitudes (we have had Bob Stromberg, One Time Blind, Paul & Nicole, Ted & Lee, Tom Tufts, CPR, Dr. Comedy, Taylor Mason, Lost & Found, Bob Smiley, Curt Cloninger, The Skit Guys, Brad Montague, 3-2-1, UnBound, Hoss Ridgeway, Bean & Bailey, to name a few). God bless you as you work with teens. The Winterfest Folks. 

Our field trip

This spring we went to visit the Chapel in Marlboro. We got to meet and hear from Daniel Ritchie.  He is a Youth Minister from NC who was born without arms. What an inspiring life story! Click the link to learn more about him.
Mark your calendars for the Belpre Youth Rally November 18-20, 2022 and Winterfest in Gatlinburg Feb. 17-19, 2023. More info will be coming as these events get closer.
