The Hampton Roads Teen Ministry had an encouraging Teen Rally this past weekend full of fun, Olympic Style games, and fellowship! With the theme "Greater Than Gold," the Teen Ministry and many of their friends were challenged to run a race to win a prize that would last. (1st Corinthians 9) Matt Fisk, this years Guest Speaker, highlighted just how often we pursue a life full of "virtual realities" that leave us unfulilled. We want to give Matt a BIG "Thank You" for calling us to run the race that God has marked out for us and to look expectantly to acheiving a prize that will last forever! Did you miss the rally?

The Men's Retreat this year welcomed over 450 men from the Virginia Churches and the newly planted church in Charleston, West Virginia to descend on the mountains of Virginia to fellowship, share good news, enjoy sportsmanship, and hear God's word preached! With our theme this year being "Honor The King," we delved deeply into Gods word to know the King, to fight for Him, and to ultimately bring Him honor with the way we live our lives. The Hampton Roads Church and the fellowship of churches in both Virginia and West Virginia extend another hand of thanks and gratitude to Andy Fleming for powerfully preaching the Word of God, giving his heart in the fellowship, and inspiring the brotherhood to be apart of all the God wants us to do to bring Him honor!

The Hampton Roads Church hosted Troas Teaching Night III, its continuing congregational teaching series on this past Friday night, September 30th. This session's topic was "KOINONIA: Devotion to Fellowship." Since we live in an extremely individualistic age and culture, and must deal with the pressures of individualism, there is a great need to fully appreciate the Scriptures, the Body of Christ, God's plan for His children, and the power of spiritual disciplines to awaken us to embrace the blessings of community. If you missed this eye-opening time together, check out the audio recordings below!
The ACR East Coast Service was an inspiring time as disciples from all over the East Coast gathered in Woodbridge, VA to worship, to see new elders appointed, and to send off the Mission Team to Charleston, West Virginia. The Marbury's and the Benton's were appointed as Elders and now represent our newest elders in the ACR. We are so inspired by all that God is doing in the Montgomery County church and throughout our region of churches. Special thanks to the Northern Virginia Church for hosting and organizing a service we'll never forget!
