Venture Weekend 2019

Venture Weekend is our version of a Disciple Now retreat where students (grades 7-12) spend time in Bible study and worship at the church and then spend the night in homes of FBC church members.

Every year, Venture is a highly anticipated weekend. Students spend the weekend split between the main conference sessions at FBC Rockwall and Small Groups at Church Members' Homes. Each group is divided by grade and gender. Everyone will join together in the Student Ministry Building for the main sessions and then return to the church member's home for discussion and also to spend the night.

More about the weekend...

T-shirt pickup and Host Home reveal will be on Wednesday, January 16th, in the Student Ministry Building. Venture will start with students being dropped off at their host home on Friday night, January 18th.

If you have to arrive late, leave early, or be gone during any part of the weekend, you must turn in a Time Away card. They are only to be used in emergency situations such as work or school functions. You can pick up Time Away cards in the Student Ministry office.
