“Is it OK to attend just on Saturday?” YES.
Some people have asked us about attending only on Saturday. That is perfectly OK – we have a full day on Saturday and it makes up most of the youth rally. We know that everyone is busy with activities at their own congregation. Being away for 3 days can be difficult and costly.
The 2019 River Valley Youth Rally will be held at Pleasant Valley Church of Christ in Van Buren, Arkansas March 29th – 31st, 2019.

Highlights for the 2019 River Valley Youth Rally
|Parents and Youth Leaders Question & Answer. Lonnie Jones will be doing a question and answer session with parents and youth leaders. Lonnie has done this in previous rallies and people enjoyed strong recommendations and answers from a biblical standpoint. This will be on Saturday.|
Break out Class Sessions. We will have three different breakout class sessions for all youth members that will be taught by ministers and church leaders.
Girls-Only Breakout Session. There will also be a session that is reserved for youth girls and women. This was very popular last year, and our speaker, Shari Moxley will be back to teach this class.
Adult Hospitality Area. The adult hospitality area is a great place to gather with other adults who are doing the challenging & rewarding work of building young Christians. This area will be setup during youth break-out sessions and will have drinks and snacks.
Lonnie Jones. Lonnie is a very popular speaker for youth events because of his engaging storytelling and strong adherence to the Bible. He will be speaking about the importance of youth having a Christian Identity.
Cookout. We will be cooking burgers and hotdogs for a great outdoor supper on Saturday evening. This has been very popular with our local youth and other church members in the past.
Church Camp Experience. We have set aside time for outdoor activities to include things like: basketball, volleyball, frisbee, and football. After that, we will gather near the bonfire to sing church camp songs that will sound great outside.
Great Singing. Daniel Hudgens is back to lead singing for 2019. Several people commented on how enjoyable and inspiring it was to hear the singing worship of everyone.
