CONNECT: Jr High at GUC
(grades 5, 6, 7, 8)
Connect what you’ve learned in your life, in Sunday School and church to the person you’re becoming now. Connect the story of your life to the story of God. Connect who you are (your passions, skills, and dreams) with what the world needs.
CONNECT: Jr High meets for Sunday School at 9:00 am, before worship, and monthly throughout the year for fun, friendship, service, and learning. Come join us on Sunday mornings for spirited exchanges of ideas about the Bible, contemporary issues affecting young people, and the challenges of living a life that reflects God’s love in the world.
ENCOUNTER: Sr High at GUC
(grades 9 – 12)
Encounter new ideas, big questions, and all kinds of people — from Guatemala to right here at home. Get your hands dirty finding out where and how the world needs you.
ENCOUNTER: Sr High meets on Wednesday evenings from 6 - 7:15. There’s always pizza and a chance to talk about what matters — and what can get overlooked in the frantic course of our day-to-day lives. We’ll be taking up topics throughout the course of the year so you can drop in once, come every week, or choose a conversation that interests you.
Sr High students also travel each year to be the face of love at Los Hogares ( in Santa Apolonia, Guatemala). We travel on behalf of the congregation here, and come back ready to share what we’ve seen, experienced, and how we’ve changed. Most of us who’ve been on this trip find that it shapes the way we look at the rest of world: what the world needs, how we might be of service, and why any of that matters.
Glencoe Union Church is pleased to introduce our new Assistant Minister, Colin Knapp. Colin has begun his work with us, in mid-August and is excited to with our youth in September.
