Junior High Ministry


Our junior high youth group meets weekly, during the school year, on Sunday evenings from 5:30-7:00 pm at the church. This 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 7th and 8th grade students. These groups are formed by gender. They meet weekly, or bi-weekly, in homes in River Forest or Oak Park. For more details contact Marc Fillion.


Our Winter Retreat is held at Timber-lee Christian Camp over a weekend in early winter. The camp provides the worship and the speaker allowing us, as leaders, to spend more time doing what we love--spending time with students.

Summer Service

Teens N Touch (TNT)

During the week of VBS students entering 8th and 9th grade have an opportunity to serve during the morning as leaders and assistants in VBS classrooms and then spend time in the afternoon participating in activities together. Contact the office for more information.
