Youth Activities

During this period of sheltering at home and staying safe, First Church has sustained its active youth programming through these and other online and in-person activities.

During the first 3 months of the Covid-19 pandemic while First Church had been closed,  Weekly Virtual Youth Group Meetings were held Sunday afternoons, 4:00 to 6:00 p.m., to play games, read devotions, and enjoy fellowship time together.  While meetings were suspended for the summer, youth and their families volunteered at the Northern Illinois Food Bank doing food sorting and packing. 

Even during the pandemic, First Church has maintained a vital, active Christian Youth Group for young people in  6th through 12th grade.  Members are drawn from within the  congregation as well as from other churches and communities.
