Join us at SHYG

Sunday evenings, 7:00-9:00 p.m.

Each week, we have a time of worshiping God through song with a live band, and a time of teaching. During the school year, we also split into small groups (divided up by grade and gender), with an adult small group leader.



Faith in Action

Thursday afternoons, 4:00-5:30 p.m.

SHYG is privileged to have an opportunity to serve locally each and every week of the year. We meet at the Lake Forest campus, then serve at two different locations.

One team goes to Bernie’s Book Bank, located in West Lake Forest. Bernie’s exists to connect book needing kids with kids needing books. We sort, sticker, and bag books each week, to prepare for distribution in local schools and communities.

The other team goes to the PADS Family Center in Gurnee. The Family Center houses families that are temporarily homeless. Our team plays with the children of the residents there, encouraging them while their family is in a difficult situation.

If you would like to participate in Faith in Action, simply show up on a Thursday at the Lake Forest campus at 4:00 p.m.


Student Impact

Student Impact is our program for SHYG where high school students serve on Sunday mornings with our grade school ministry (Lighthouse) or Middle School Ministry (Cove).


The Student Ministry Team

The Student Ministry Team is our program for juniors and seniors who are ready to step up in their leadership and service at SHYG.

D2 Student Drama Team

D2 was born of Christ Church students’ desire to serve both God and the church though the use of the performing arts! Psalm 45:1 states: “My heart is stirred by a noble theme as I recite verse for the King; my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer.” This advanced level drama team knows and lives out this verse. Team members meet weekly for training, fellowship, and rehearsals, and enjoy serving throughout the ministry season when needed in every area of the church and through a special seasonal production. D2 requires an audition for participation and is only open to students 8th grade and higher. If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact Kat at
