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 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 three campuses: St. Charles, Blackberry Creek, and Dekalb.

For our Streamwood-Bartlett campus, the students will meet on Thursday nights from 6:30 - 8:30pm at the Streamwood-Bartlett campus at 23 W. Streamwood Blvd, Streamwood, IL 60107. Please jump in and join us any time!
