Welcome to Genesis!

Student Ministries welcomes all incoming 6th graders (2016/2017) to our Genesis program. Genesis is not only for middle schoolers - we want families to be involved in partnering with us to guide students through their middle school years. We will be hosting several transition events this spring and summer so that you can get to know the student ministries team.

On June 4th for St. Charles, Dekalb, and Streamwood-Bartlett campuses and June 11th for the Blackberry Creek Campus we will be having our annual "Welcome to 6th Grade" picnic. For details about your campus and registration information please click here.
