overflow: The River Youth

(Grades 6-12)

Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me… rivers of living water will flow from within them.”

This verse from John 7 is a good summary of our goals as a youth group; we gather together weekly for fellowship, fun, worship, and learning. We encourage each other and build each other up, trying to help each other become better followers of Christ. And we leave each week with the goal of taking the Living Water of Christ out into our world, to our friends, our schools, our teams, and our families.

Our youth come from Blacksburg, Christiansburg, Floyd, Riner, Shawsville, and all over the New River Valley. Anyone from grades 6-12 is invited to join us for our weekly gathering, or for any of our special events! Chris Meckley is our Youth Minister, and Kelsa Graybill is our Assistant Youth Minister.

Overflow meets weekly on Sundays at The River’s Edge (209D College Ave, Blacksburg; above Souvlaki) from 5-6:30pm. In addition to this, our Middle School girls meet with Kelsa most Tuesdays from 6:30-8pm, and our Middle School boys meet with Chris on Thursdays from 4-5pm for small group discipleship. We also get together monthly for bigger fun events or service projects.
