Youth Group

Common Grounds-Jesus Café and Youth Center
We love Youth at First. Young people in grades 6 through 12 meet together on Thursday evenings from 7-8:30 pm for a time of awesome and dynamic fun, fellowship, study, worship and mission. Following is a listing of activities:

Camp Walter Scott

Is a ministry of the Christian Church (DOC) in Illinois/Wisconsin and a multi-faceted camp facility. Each summer many of our youth attend a week long spiritual retreat at the camp with other youth from around the region. The natural landscape of the forested camp provides an opportunity for children, youth and adults to meet, worship, and play in the beauty of God’s creation.

Summit-November 2019

Is held every two years and is a high energy weekend retreat geared toward middle school and high school youth from Illinois/Wisconsin. It is held at Lake Williamson Christian Center in Carlinville, Illinois.

Mission Trips

Our youth partner with other churches to engage in mission in other parts of the country. This past year they went to Cincinnati where they hosted block parties and worked with different mission sites each day. It was life-changing!
