Youth Group

Youth Group (YG) is an opportunity to have fun and grow in a supportive environment as we talk about what it means to be a Christian in today’s world and the challenges of being a youth. Our youth can participate in fun fellowship activities, faith-development opportunities (youth conference and retreats), and summer mission trips and local service projects.

Middle School Youth Group

Middle School YG (MSYG) meets weekly during Family Night on Wednesday evenings, 7:00-8:00 pm. The evening starts with dinner, from 6:00-7:00 pm, where the youth can either sit with their families, sit as a groups together, or interact with attendees younger and/or much older than themselves. It has a definite family feel. MSYG is then a time for just middle school (grades 6-8) youth and their adult leaders to gather for playing games, learning lessons about life, and listening to each other’s highs and lows for the week. Due to the large number of school districts represented by church membership and the Family Night ministry, our youth get to build relationships with youth they normally don’t get to see often.

Middle School Mission Trip

In the evenings we’ll participate in a local worship service, go to the beach of Lake Michigan, hear from community friends who work with teens in the inner city, and more.

High School Youth Group

HSYG (for grades 9-12) gathers Sunday evenings, 6:00-8:00 pm, to grow in relationship with God and each other. Our high school youth ministry offers a wide range of programs and activities designed to engage youth right where they are and develop a faith that they can see in their everyday lives. Our program draws from at least seven different high schools in the area, bringing together teens from all over the northwest suburbs of Chicago. By the time they are graduating high school seniors, our high school youth will have been challenged in their faith, served others in mission, and made friendships that will last a lifetime.

High School Mission Trip

We will be staying at Camp El Guacio, a PC(USA) Camp, in Puerto Rico and helping the camp and surrounding areas with service projects. These projects have included painting buildings, pressure washing, ceiling crack filling, green area maintenance, and more. As we continue to be in contact with our hosts, we will have more and more details about specifics of the trips, so please be on the look out.

CollegeCARE connects young adults

CollegeCARE is our ministry for college-age youth and their families. We are focused on continuing to grow relationships with God, the church, and each other. We connect through preparing and sending care packages; gatherings and activities over holiday and summer breaks; service projects and mission trips; and ongoing contact through social media and phone calls. All of this is designed to let the college youth know that while they may not frequently be physically at the church, they are still very much a part of it.

For more information about any of our programs for youth, contact TC Anderson.
