What's up in Middle School?

Each week throughout the school year, middle school students from all around the Fox Valley and Dekalb areas gather together on Wednesday nights from 6:30pm-8:30pm for Genesis, a Wednesday evening program packed with games, music, videos, interactive teaching and breakout groups for discussion. Everyone is welcome and can jump into the program at any time at any of our four campuses: St. Charles, Blackberry Creek, Streamwood-Bartlett, and Dekalb.
