Village KidsRooted in Love, Growing in Faith
We help each child take their first steps on a life-long journey with Jesus. Village Kids (ages 6 weeks to 5th grade) is a place where children can discover who God is through His stories in the Bible and grow in their personal relationship with Him.
In addition to the Village Kids’ Sunday morning programs, children can participate in Kids’ Choir and Kids’ Bell Choir with musicals during the Christmas and Lenten seasons. We also offer families the chance to come together to serve others.
In-person Sunday school is available at the 9:30 am worship service for babies through fifth grade. At 11:00 am childcare is available for babies through four-years old.
Beginning June 12, Kid's Ministry is offered during the 8:30 am service for infants to age 4, and during the 10:00 am service for infants to 5th grade. In August they will explore the connection between love and God's character as shown through God's big story.
1 Thessalonians 5:11 (NRSV): "Therefore encourage one another and build up each other, as indeed you are doing."

We help each one of our 6th - 12th grade youths to know, love, and follow Jesus. We want to be the best neighbors to our Northbrook community. Therefore, we are committed to acts of service here in Northbrook, in the surrounding Chicago area, and around the world.
Being a disciple of Jesus is a life-long endeavor. Our Christian faith shapes our values, influences our relationships, and changes how we live. Each youth is encouraged to discover how they can join God's mission in their everyday life right where they are — at home, at school, and in their community.
Teens need to experience authentic relationships with other disciples their age and with loving Christian mentors. Together we'll have fun, challenge each other, support one another, serve together, and walk through both good times and tough times together.

Sunday Youth Church (SYC)
Each Sunday morning during our Contemporary Worship Service our jr and sr high youths meet in Fellowship Hall for a teen version of Sunday morning church. We call it SYC! We discuss and study the same key sculptures that the adults in the sanctuary do, only with a focus and an application more relevant and useful to teens.
Village Jr High
Village Jr High meets every Wednesday at 7:00 pm in Fellowship Hall. It's a great mid-week break to focus on God and have some fun together! We wrap things up by 8:30 pm
Expect a mix of activities, games (played in Westminster Hall), music, teaching, small group discussion, prayer, and more!
VILLAGE Sr High
Village Sr High meets every Sunday at 7:00 pm for some fun, food, time with friends, small group discussion, and Bible study. We meet in Fellowship Hall and wrap things up by 9:00 pm.
CONFIRMATION (8th Grade)
Confirmation is for any 8th Grader looking to enter the process of confirming their faith in Jesus. Confirmation starts in January and culminates with Confirmation Day in late April each year. This special Sunday involves a public declaration of faith in Jesus, along with a commitment to participate in the life of our church community.
