Arlington Heights | College

College is a key developmental time to dig deeper roots in God’s Word, share life together in Jesus Christ, and bear fruit for God’s glory. If you’re attending college in the northwest suburbs or are college-aged and looking for a place to get plugged in, we have a place for you! 

College LIFE Group

Join us for College LIFE Group to grow together as college students. We will dig into God’s Word, pray for one another, and encourage each other’s growth in Christ. We meet Sunday evenings, October 13 – May 17 at 7 p.m. at Alex Kent’s home. Group discussion will be sermon-based.

Is this a safe place to wrestle with my faith? 

Absolutely. We want you to be able to ask hard questions here. We will support you and continue to point you to the truth of God’s Word as we believe it is fully true and our best guide. 

Do I need to attend the church to come to events? 

Although we strongly encourage you to attend church weekly, we’d still love for you to join us even if you’re not attending the church.
