We encourage spiritual growth and the nurturing of our faith through participation in worship, Sunday school, and regular and intentional Bible study. Check out the various options for growing our faith below:
This class begins the formation of children’s understanding of faith in Jesus Christ.
Kids participate in actively learning together using the fun and engaging Kids Own Worship from Group Publishing.
Elementary (1st-5th grade)
Using a Bible- based curriculum, elementary kids are encouraged to discuss their different life situations while learning to apply the gospel of Jesus Christ.
MIDDLE SCHOOL & HIGH SCHOOL (6TH-12TH GRADES)
Middle and High Schoolers spend time together each week studying God’s Word through the use of a short devotional and time for group discussion around topical issues.
ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL
Through the exploration of biblical text, our two adult groups are invited into a deepened relationship with God. The Present Word study curriculum engages us in an experiential style of learning—connecting faith and life.
Wednesday Brown Bag Bible Study
On Wednesday evenings from 6-7pm in the fellowship hall, we have a mid-week Bible study over the supper hour. Brown Bag Bible Study allows folks a chance to fellowship together over supper and to study the Word of God. Our studies and topics for discussion vary throughout the year.
Brown Bag Bible Study concludes on May 29th. We are taking a break over the summer but will begin a new study in September. Watch this space for our start date and new study!
A goal of our Youth Ministry program is to nurture, in our youth, faith and a deep love for Jesus Christ, compassion for others, and a heart for service. We also strive to help our youth develop an understanding of how they fit into the church, the community and the world. Our youth are the future of our church, so it is vital to give them a solid foundational understanding of Jesus Christ and God’s people in the world. We strive to have fun, grow spiritually, and serve others.

Annually, we go on a spring trip together; have an awesome Vacation Bible School, have a fall hayride, s’mores & hot dog roast; a Halloween party; and lots of other fun activities. Each summer we attend camp together at Craig Springs Camp and Retreat Center where we study, learn and meet God in the mountains. We also strive to serve others through working at the Blacksburg Interfaith Food Pantry and through our participation in other service opportunities. We also have the opportunity to serve as counselors at Craig Springs’ Nature Camp for at-risk children.
The Women's ministry is very active at Blacksburg Christian Church. Our Disciple Women’s Ministry (DWM) group meets monthly for fellowship, Bible Study and spiritual growth, ministry and community outreach service projects.
Our Annual Two-Day Yard Sale (which includes a Silent Auction, Breakfast and Lunch Sales and a Bake Sale) is our one fund-raiser each year. We generally raise over $5,000 which we then give to support over fifteen local organizations such as the Interfaith Food Pantry, the Micah’s Backpack Program, the Virginia CARES program, the New River Valley Women’s Resource Center, and the Montgomery County Christmas Store.
We also are involved in issues of global and national social injustice, crisis relief and poverty.
Disciples Women’s Ministries is a conduit for diverse connections, empowering each woman to find her voice and live out her call. (Micah 6:8)
Disciples Women’s ministry (DWM)
Meets the 3rd Tuesday of each month
10 am in the Fellowship Hall
Contact Jane McCoy at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Once a month, we gather after worship to share lunch and conversation together. These lunches help us to grow in friendship and relationship with each other and help us to build a community of friends who are welcoming to all and who nurture and help one another in life.
5th Sunday Breakfasts
Each 5th Sunday Breakfast provides an opportunity for folks to share with each other their stories of personal spiritual growth. This is a time for us to give God glory and to share with each other what God has been up to lately in our lives. We give witness to the ways God has taught, changed, shaped, comforted, helped, and blessed us in our ordinary lives. Understanding God as He reveals Himself to us in the Bible is certainly important; however, sometimes we need to hear stories of the ways in which God has shown up in the ordinary lives of our friends.
