High School Ministry


Our high school youth group meets weekly on Sunday evenings from 7-9 pm at the church. This evening is a time for students to come together in a fun environment and relax with their peers and with some wonderful leaders. There are various activities that take place throughout the year from fun games to small group discussions. Our hope is that any student will feel welcomed and loved and take steps in growing in their faith. 

Small Groups

We offer small groups for all high school students. These groups are formed by grade and by gender. They meet weekly in homes in River Forest or Oak Park. For details contact Marc Fillion.

Summer Camp

Our summer camp to Hilton Head, South Carolina is a long bus journey but worth every minute. Fun in the Son has been around for over 30 years putting on these amazing events, and from 2002 to 2013 we enjoyed this experience at the Jekyll Island, Georgia location. 2014 began featuring Hilton Head as our destination. Our group joins over 1,000 other students from around the country to worship God and experience some fantastic teaching. This week enables students to spend time focusing on their relationship with God and a chance for the leaders to get along side them and encourage them in that, and every afternoon is spent having fun on the beach.

Mission Trip

Our mission trip with Son Servants has seen us travel to Mexico, Texas, New Orleans, Kentucky, Jamaica, and West Virginia. Students who attend a mission trip have an amazing experience. They come with an attitude to give and often leave with a permanent change of heart to serve others at home.

Summer Service

High school students are given the opportunity to grow in their faith by leading in Ready, Set, Go. Every summer our church offers a week long program for 5th, 6th, and 7th grade students. This camp is lead by our high school students - leading worship, leading small groups, and chaperones on field trips.
