So glad you have taken the time to visit our Youth Ministry page. Here at Libertyville Covenant Church we are committed to helping students understand that they are loved by God, saved by Christ, and called to live a new life in a broken and hurting world. We are committed to creating space for students to ask questions that they are wrestling with: Who am I? Do I have value? Can you be trusted? Who is God? What purpose might God have for my life? As a ministry we are committed to study and application of God’s word, developing knowledge and application of the Christian faith, developing a relentless trust in Christ and a conscious dependence on the Holy Spirit.

HALO: A 4-WEEK STUDY FROM THE GOSPELS ON CHRISTMAS

SERIES OVERVIEW:

There are certain things that make Christmas really feel like Christmas, right? Christmas trees, holly, candy canes, nativity sets, that one Christmas album your family can’t get enough of . . . oh! And angels. If you pay attention, you’ll find them everywhere this Christmas season. They’re on Christmas trees, ornaments, and greeting cards. They’re in Christmas carols, movies, and nativity sets. And they’re all over the pages of Scripture, too. That’s because angels played an important role in the very first Christmas. In this four-week series from the Gospels, we’ll pay close attention to the announcements the angels made surrounding Jesus’ birth. Together, we’ll see why the messages the angels shared back then still matter today — like the message that God’s timing is always right, that Jesus is always good news, that we can always share God’s story, and that God is always ready to rescue.

MIDDLE SCHOOL WEEKLY SCHEDULE                                 

Confirmation: Sundays (Grades 6-8) 9:00a-10:00a.m.

Sunday Mornings Middle School students are welcome to join Pastor Steve Larson and Jim Pas for confirmation/Sunday school. Come at any time and enjoy the journey of faith to foster a deep and abiding relationship with Father, Son, and Holy Spirit by encouraging participants to begin, or intentionally continue, a life-long journey as Christ’s disciple.

THE JOURNEY

The focus of The Journey curriculum used is twofold. First, students have an opportunity to learn the truths of the Christian faith, through the stories of the Bible, and through the ongoing work of the church. Second, students have an opportunity to develop discipling relationships with pastors, mentors and parents. The focus is not only to learn what the Bible says, but to commune with God through the Word and through mentoring relationships. Both are for the purpose of developing a growing relationship with Christ and helping students learn to articulate what they believe about the Bible’s message, and how faith in Christ translates into living out God’s will in the world.

Youth Group: Wednesdays (Grades 6-8) 6:30p-7:45p.m. through November 30th.  Beginning again on January 11, 2023
