We will be biking from the church to Harpers Ferry (about 60 miles) on paved paths/roads. We will then camp in Harpers Ferry for two nights and head back the same route we came. On our day off we will do some hiking and tubing on the Potomac River. This trip is for grades 9–12 only.

Our Mission

The Youth Ministry of Fourth Church exists to establish young believers from 6th to 12th grade in their Christian faith, that they might love God, know his Word, and serve him. We build a biblical foundation for students to become lifelong disciples of Christ. We do this through faithful Scripture teaching, intentional small group relationships, and community fellowship in many ways throughout the year.
