EDGE Schedule


Youth Worship Band

On select Sunday evenings our musical students gather together for dinner, fellowship, rehearse and participate in jam sessions.  Once a month or so they lead worship on Sunday mornings.  If you would like to be part of this –whether it be singing, helping with sound/tech or playing an instrument in the band—see Bradley or our Worship Arts Director Luke Merwin or email our Pastor of Spiritual Growth and Community Life using this email link - Pastor Tony West.


Students meet several times a year at St. Francis Church in Lake Zurich @ 4:30 p.m. to serve a meal and ice cream to the under-resourced.  There will be a time to play with the children and to talk and pray for the people who come to this dinner.  Students are also encouraged to use their gifts in music and drama as well.  We meet from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.  Please check back here in the future for the 2020 schedule to serve.  If you have any questions or if your student needs a ride or if you can help with transportation please contact Pastor Tony using the email link above.

EQUIP Sundays

Usually twice a month, our students will have an opportunity to be equipped to think biblically and live out the Word of God in their daily lives. These classes for the 6th-12th graders are interactive and will focus on relevant topics that students are dealing with in regards to their faith. These classes will meet at 10:25am during the Worship Service in either the Chapel Reception room or the Community House. Donuts or bagels are often included. On other Sundays we seek to equip our students to listen to and apply the sermon with the adults in the Worship service and at least one Sunday a month many of our students serve in the Children's Ministry or with Worship Arts. Upcoming EQUIP Sundays are January 12th and 26th as well as February 2nd.  There is no Equip on January 5th as the students will be at Districts.


This ministry which feeds, clothes & ministers to homeless men & women on the streets of Chicago at a shelter is now expanding to include youth and adults from our church. Needed items that we hand out are Bibles, new underwear and new socks. If you would like more information, to donate food or to join our ministry please contact Pastor Tony via the email link above.
