Great Lakes Regional Youth Event

Open to students currently in 6th – 12th Grade

Once every four years, all of the UCC churches in our area of the Midwest converge on a single college campus for four days of fun, fellowship, discovery, and play. It’s an awesome event full of music, worship, interest-classes for teens and adults, plus—bonus!—an opportunity to meet hundreds of other UCC teens from the great lakes region. This is not a work tour or mission trip; instead, this is an event designed for teens to gather, grow, and have a good time.

Our own Pastor Emily is co-chair of this year’s event, and it’s taking place right in our backyard at Elmhurst College in Elmhurst, Illinois, so we’re hoping to have a big crew from FCC attend. The total cost for this event is $300, but every student will have an opportunity to receive financial assistance from the church and to earn credit (though volunteering) to help bring the cost down to a manageable figure for any family.

Registration closes on Tuesday, May 1. If you are interested in attending or we can answer any questions, please contact Pastor Emily at 815-459-6010 x 13 or We can’t wait to have you join us for this amazing event!
