We desire to shepherd students out of conformity to this world and into disciples of Jesus who want to lead others to follow Jesus too. To this end, we gather twice per week for a time of opening God's Word together, small group discussion, fun, and fellowship. We also encourage students to meet with youth leaders and one another outside of these times to pray and study God's Word. Join us on Sundays at 9am or Wednesdays at 6:30pm!
What should I expect? Where do I go? What do I do? How do I get involved?
We are so excited to have you join us! We know coming to a youth group for the first time can be a scary thing, so we hope we can help ease some of those anxieties a bit. First of all, know that we want you with us! We want you to feel welcomed and at home with us and know that this is a safe place for you to explore what it means to follow Jesus. We also have a great team of youth leaders that are really looking forward to meeting you and getting to know you better, and our students are pretty great too. So please stop by on a Wednesday or a Sunday! You can ask for Nick Conner (he's the youth pastor), just tell him you're visiting for the first time. He would love to talk with you and show you around. If you have any other questions, you can reach Nick by calling the church office (630.393.7344) anytime during the week, or by email.
9:00am in CE 14/15
We meet together each Sunday to study a book of the bible or a topic that is pertinent to the life of our students.

GET INVOLVED IN THE IL SCHOOL PROJECT
Join us with youth groups all over the Chicagoland area as we seek to cultivate a passion to see God glorified in the lives of young people trusting in Christ in our local schools. National School Project - IL seeks to give practical tools to students to start Christian clubs and provide ways for christians across youth groups and churches to collaborate and entrust their classmates to the Lord as they pray for salvation, host events to share the gospel, host these christian clubs, and invite them to church.
JOIN THE YOUTH LEADERSHIP TEAM
We are looking for mature believers who are passionate about discipling our youth to join our Youth Leadership Team.
