The high school youth at Faith participate in regular Bible study and discussion, service to the community and take special note to see how God is active in their lives and the community and world around them.
FLY Forum takes place September to May on Sundays from 9:45-10:45am in the youth room. During this time, FLY discusses the Bible and stories that are often overlooked, helping students to think about what they mean to us today. You won't want to miss these discussions!
FLY Nights happen every Wednesday night from 7 to 8:30pm. We gather for games and discussions on current topics and how those intersect with our faith. We aim to ask the bigger questions and learn how to be okay if we don't always know the answers. We also have annual traditions that you won't want to miss out on like our Christmas Party and Fall Flannel Fiesta events! Join us as we explore the complexities of God and faith in our society, while also embracing our FLY community!
Student Leadership Team
Student Leadership Team learns not only skills for general leadership but also how to foster and encourage faith in others. They meet weekly to participate in book discussions, brainstorm events and dream for the future of the ministry on behalf of all the teens at Faith.
Faith in Action - Community Service Partnerships
Glen Ellyn Food Pantry Service Week 2020
FLY loves to put their faith into action. FLY partners with different organizations throughout the community during the year to help be the hands and feet of Christ to those around them. From helping cook a meal for PADS to stuffing bags with Feed My Starving Children to volunteering at the Glen Ellyn Food Pantry, FLY continues to look for new opportunities to serve the community around them.
Mission Trip to Kansas City
Over the years Faith has begun a three year rotation when planning the youth mission trips: ELCA Youth Gathering, international mission trip, and a national mission trip. Each trip is selected to help students step out of their comfort zone, meet God in new ways, open their eyes to the injustices in the world around them, and to help put their faith into action. FLY students also have the opportunity to apply to be a part of our Mission Trip Student Leadership Teams.
