John’s River Valley Camp (JRVC) is an outdoor ministry site near Blowing Rock, owned and operated by the Southern Conference of the United Church of Christ.
This year’s summer camp curriculum is titled “Branching Out: Connecting Through Christ.” Summer camping experiences at various levels for different ages take place during June and July.
JRVC is accredited by the American Camp Association. It has two camp environments: the main site, with cabins and a dining hall; and the outpost site, where campers share in preparation of meals, learn outdoor living skills appropriate for their age level, lodge in Aframe cabins, and engage in adventure activities.
Johns River Valley Camp seeks to provide, in an outdoor setting, opportunities for persons to experience the presence of God, to discover personal wholeness, and to participate amidst Christian community. For more information, visit Johns River Valley Camp

Families First

A new group for children, youth and their parents, called Families First, has been formed at FRUCC. The group will meet at least once a month to discuss family faith formation. They will also have family events scheduled to help the youth form bonds with their friends and the other parents as they eat and play together. Some of the fall activities being discussed are:

  • a taco bar luncheon,
  • a trip to a corn maze,
  • a hot dog/ pumpkin painting event,
  • attending the chili cook-off and Advent workshop, and
    family service projects for October, November, and December.

All church youth and their parents are invited to attend the events. Friends are welcome. We hope to help the youth grow in faith and relationship to God and to our church family.
