Welcome to shyg

SHYG - Crossroads Campus

Sunday evenings, 6:00-8:00 p.m.

At SHYG (Senior High Youth Group for grades 9-12) we help students grow in wisdom in order to build up the body of Christ. We go about that end in a few ways. On Sunday nights from 6-8pm, we meet for games, worship, teaching, small groups, food, and quality time. In the fall and winter we have retreats for intentional times of teaching and community building and in the summer we go on a mission trip to serve, learn, and consider what the practical implications of our faith are.   

SHYG - Lake Forest Campus

Sundays, 6:00-8:00 p.m.

SHYG (Senior High Youth Group for grades 9-12) exists to build a caring community of Christ-followers who will reach the community around them with grace. We meet Sunday nights from 6-8pm (6-7:30pm during the summer) where we have teaching, music, and small groups. Fall and Winter Retreats are highlights of the year, as are our summer mission trips, both domestic and international. Students are invited to participate no matter where they are in their faith journey.
