Spring 2017 Events

Journey Weekend Middle School Retreat

Journey Weekend is an amazing Spring Retreat for designed just for Middle School students.  This year the retreat will be March 17th - 19th, and it will again be at Rockbridge Camp in Goshen, VA.  This is probably our favorite retreat center, with climbing walls, soccer fields, a whiffleball field, frisbee golf, high ropes course, alpine swing, and more.  The speaker is Mark Oestreicher and the band Relinquish will be leading worship.  Every year we have gone to this retreat, the students have a fantastic time.  We would love to have your student join in!  Sign up now through March 10th. Cost is $150/person.  Need based scholarships are available.  Feel free to invite your friends to come along too.  It's really a blast.  

Easter Eggstravaganza

The Vine Church students will have the opportunity to serve at Eggstravaganza again this year!  This Easter celebration includes a huge egg hunt for the children in our neighborhood.  Help us hide Easter eggs for this massive 3,000+ egg hunt, and share the love of Christ with our community.  We will start hiding eggs on Easter Sunday, April 16th at 11am at the Dunn Loring Campus.

Youth Easter Egg Hunt

Why should the kids have all the fun?  Students can come back to Vine Church Dunn Loring Campus for their own egg hunt at 5pm on Easter Sunday, April 16th.  Parents and Youth Workers will do the hiding, which will be a little more challenging than the kids egg hunt from the morning.  

End of the Year Party

We will celebrate the end of the school year and kick off summer with a party!  Join us for food and fun June 16th, 6:00 - 7:30pm.

Youth Mission Trip to the Pittsburgh Project

Vine Church students will be serving the Lord at the Pittsburgh Project this summer, July 30th - August 5th. The Pittsburgh Project is a Christian nonprofit community development organization working with the people of Pittsburgh for over 30 years.  They offer summer camps where students can come in and help vulnerable homeowners with free home repairs.  This trip is open to students entering 7th through 12th grades.  Parents are welcome also.  Each trip requires a $50 non-refundable / non-transferrable deposit per person, and the total cost will be $390 per person.  We have need based scholarships available.  I hope your student will be able to join in on this fantastic opportunity to serve and see others as Jesus sees them.
