Fairview Road Youth Group (F.R.Y.G.)
The Fairview Road Youth Group (F.R.Y.G.) is for students in 6th-12th grade. Our desire is that every student that is a part of this ministry will GROW into a relationship with Christ and that they will ESTABLISH a faith that they can call their own.
F.R.Y.G. meets Sunday morning for bible class and Wednesday night for class. Throughout the year we have a variety of events from mission trips, retreats, devotionals, and camps that help lead students towards Christ and help them develop their own faith.
If you are interested in getting involved with the Fairview Road Youth Group you can contact our youth minister or you can download the monthly calendar and attend any of our events. We can’t wait to meet you!
When We Meet
Sunday Morning 9AM
On Sunday mornings the youth group meets together for Bible class that helps the teens grow closer to Christ and strengthens their faith. The 6th-12th grade students are divided into two classes: a Middle School class and a High School class.
Every 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month we have a devotional at the home of a member at the Fairview Road Church of Christ. We usually eat a meal, spend time in worship, and hang out with one another.
Every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month during the school year in the youth room from 7-9pm. We usually have a bible study for about an hour and then play a game for the other hour.
Through out the year the Fairview Road Youth Group participates in a number of larger activities ranging from camps, retreats, and mission trips. Below is a description of each of the major events from 2011 and 2012. You can contact Mike Coghill for more information or to sign-up.
Uplift June 23-28, 2012
Uplift is our most attended summer camp. Uplift is a camp that is put on by Harding University in Searcy, AR. Students stay in the dorms on Harding’s campus. Students will attend classes, small discussion groups, and they also spend time in worship with the entire camp. This camp is for 7th-High School Graduates.

Little Prairie Bible Camp
If you are looking for a summer camp that is fun and is outside then Little Prairie Bible Camp is the camp for you. We attend the second combined week of Little Prairie Bible Camp, which is just outside of Rolla, MO. This is a great opportunity for kids to be outside and gather with other kids from around Missouri to grow closer to God. You can get more information @ www.littleprairie.org/
Winterfest February 17-19, 2012
Every February we gather with 13,000 Christians in Gatlinburg, TN for Winterfest. Winterfest is the biggest event we go to during the school year. This trip provides teens with an opportunity to grow closer to God and recharge their spiritual battery. You can get more information @ www.winterfest.org
Honduras Mission Trip – Spring Break
During Spring Break we go on a mission trip to the country of Honduras and work with the organization Predisan. This trip provides the students the opportunity to live out their faith and serve other people. Students are also able to see God in another culture. Students always leave wishing they could stay longer.
Extreme Home Makeover – July 2012
Every year the Fairview Road Church of Christ puts on the Extreme Home Makeover of Columbia, MO. During this time they remodel the home of a person in need in the Columbia, MO area. The youth group is always heavily involved in this effort and they enjoy the opportunity to serve some one from their own community.
