Winter Meltdown is this weekend! 

We will be meeting at Central Presbyterian Church on Friday at 6:30 pm to leave for the weekend.  We will not be stopping for dinner, so students and leaders should eat before they arrive.


What to bring:  Bedding (pillow, sleeping bag, and/or sheets and a blanket), towel and personal hygiene items, warm clothing suitable for outside, casual clothes, sneakers, a Bible, and 1-2 masks (regardless of mask preference).

  • RVR does have a snack bar, so you might want to bring some money for a treat.
  • Wear RED on Friday!  Our group is on Team Blaze for the weekend!
  • Canned Food Items.  RVR is collecting canned goods for The Transformation Center in Baltimore (check out the video for details)

What not to bring: weapons, drugs, alcohol, tobacco products, cell phones.

We will return to Central Presbyterian Church on Sunday, March 13th around 12:00 pm. 

We are still in need of a few drivers on Sunday to come pick us up.  Please contact Amy Davidson ( if you can help.


 See you Friday!
