Summer Park Group
Sundays | 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. | June 13 - August 1
A weekly rhythm is important for high school students to keep Jesus in the center of their lives. Our three weekly connection points are designed to help our students, wherever they are at with their faith, to live a life where they worship, grow, and serve as followers of Jesus Christ.
Summer Park Group
Throughout the summer, our Koinonia community will be meeting at Burns Field in Hinsdale to hang out, play games, and spend some time in small groups talking about scripture! We will be meeting June 13, 27; July 11, 18, 25; and August 1.

High School Mission Project | Grades 9 - 12
Chicago Mission Project
July 12-16 | 8am - 6pm
Our high school students (incoming 9th-12th) have the opportunity to serve alongside two oneof Christ Church’s beloved mission partners, By The Hand Club for Kids, to see how the Lord is at work in the city of Chicago. Our students will have an opportunity to experience new perspectives of life and faith in the midst of urban poverty and will be able to see the amazing work that God is doing in those neighborhoods through our Christ Church mission partner. Each day, we will travel from Oak Brook to By The Hand to spend the day serving and learning in those communities. This year's mission project will not be an overnight - all students will return to Christ Church for large group debriefs every afternoon, and head home each evening.
For the safety of our staff and students and the By The Hand community, special COVID protocol and procedures will be in place, and space will be limited. Sign up early to reserve your spot!

Summer Retreat | August 5-7, 2021
High School Summer Retreat | August 5-7, 2021
We are so excited for our first ever Summer Retreat! This three-day retreat held at Expeditions Unlimited in Baraboo, WI, will provide students with a much needed opportunity amidst the pandemic to connect with the broader high school community, and space to grow deeper in their faith in Christ or get to know Him for the first time. We are so excited for a few days of adventure, worship, and community! Due to the pandemic, special COVID protocol and procedures will be in place, and space will be limited.

Class of 2021
Monday, June 7 | 6:00-8:00pm
The Graduation Banquet is an annual celebration for the parents and students of our senior class as they come to the close of their high school career. If we are able to meet in person with one another, we will share a meal together and individually celebrate each of our seniors and usher them into the next steps of their journey!
June 22 | Indiana Dunes State Park
We don't need to explain how the Class of 2021 has sacrificed their senior year in so many ways this past year, so we wanted to put together a unique retreat to celebrate this class as best we can in this season! The Senior Retreat will take place at a lake home in the Indiana Dunes State Park area and will feature quality time for the senior class to be with one another and their leaders in order to look back on their time through student ministry and prepare their hearts for the next steps to come!
Koinonia | High School Ministry
School Year Programming
Koinonia (Greek for "fellowship" or "community") is the high school ministry at Christ Church. We believe that the church can and should be a place where students understand their identity in Christ, experience belonging in His family, and value their Kingdom purpose. Our prayer is that Koinonia can be a place where those things are true for our high school students.
Koinonia Registration for the 2021-2022 school year will go live in August 2021.
Worship is an important part of the life of our students and we are excited to offer monthly worship nights for our student community to come together. Gather evenings will feel like camp sessions with amazing worship, biblical teaching and encouragement, great fellowship with friends, and a whole lot of fun! Gather is hosted in the Worship Auditorium at our Oak Brook Campus.
Registration for the next Gather will go live in August 2021.
Ninth Grade Entry Point
Confirmation Journey 2021/2022
Our confirmation program serves two purposes: 1) A journey that walks students through the basics of the Christian faith, practices, and beliefs, and 2) an in-road for freshmen into our high school community.
The journey will begin in September and culminate in January (Date TBD) with our Milestone Celebration worship service. At that time, we will celebrate this milestone in the lives of our students as they confirm their intention to invite Jesus into the center of their story - into the center of their lives. Toward the end of August, we will connect students with their mentors and groups and equip everyone for the confirmation journey ahead!
Please reach out to Julie (email@example.com) with any questions!
Registration for Confirmation 2021/2022 Coming Soon!
Contemporary or Classic Worship
Worship With Us!
Sundays 10:45 am (year round)
This worship service has become a place where many of our students effectively connect to God and His People. We meet in Auditorium for contemporary style worship and the Sanctuary for classic. Our hope is that our students will enter into a weekly rhythm of corporate worship — at 10:45 am or at one of our other worship services.
