Press Pause Youth Fall Retreat at Lake Geneva on October 12-14: All 6-12 graders are invited to join us to "press pause" for a time of fellowship, rest, worship and prayer. No teaching. No cell phones. It's a time to unplug, slow down and be with the Lord. We will be joining 4 other Elmhurst church youth groups (Cityview, Pathway, West Suburban and Grace). Registration is due September 28. Click here to download the info sheet.
At Faith CRC we want our youth to know how to explain and live out their faith according to the teachings of the Bible. We offer Catechism classes for 6th through 12th grade youth after the Sunday morning worship service. We use the Heidelberg Catechism, an excellent summary of Scripture that came out of the Reformation of the 16th century, as a guide to help us understand what the Bible teaches us to believe and do.
Traditionally, an "asylum" was a place of REFUGE, a SECURE RETREAT, a SANCTUARY for those in need of a safe place to go. While our lives may be a little crazy at times, Asylum is a safe place where middle school youth can have fun, and grow deeper in understanding of who God is and how He acts in their lives. We encourage, nurture, and equip our students on their faith journey by using a variety of biblical lessons, activities, and events.
At The Gathering, high school students learn together in community so they may grow in their walk with Christ and grow in their relationships with each other. Our goal is to create a space to grow deeper in the Christian faith and see that faith spread into our entire lives inside and outside of the church.
