The Youth Ministry Board is pleased to announce that we have hired a new Youth Director. Kerry Reek was introduced to the congregation on April 22nd and held a meeting after worship. The youth discussed plans for upcoming events and were encouraged to participate in the Great Lakes Regional Youth Event (July 5-8) and the Mission Trip (August 1-5). Kerry is a teacher with the Special Education District of Lake County. She is a member of Community Protestant Church (UCC) in Mundelein and had a great youth group experience. So, she looks forward to creating a safe space for the youth to have opportunities to explore their faith and form meaningful relationships.
