During this season of COVID-19 and social distancing due to the virus, our youth group will not be meeting in-person as we normally do on Sunday nights. Instead, we will be meeting from 7-9PM on Sunday nights through Zoom. This meeting information is private and changes every week. If your student would like to join our Zoom youth group meetings, please contact the Director of Youth Ministries at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Northbrook Covenant Youth is open to all students in grades 6 through 12--even if you don’t attend our church! All are welcome! Come exactly as you are! Our students meet on Sunday nights from 6–8 p.m. in the Youth Room for a time of worship, creative elements such as games and spiritual practices, and a message tailored directly for middle school and high school students from God’s word. Northbrook Covenant Youth is committed to building a community of students passionately following Jesus in a way that compels others to follow Him. There are many ways for our students to participate in service projects around the community along with fun outings and weekend retreats where students have the opportunity to grow deeper in their faith. If you have any questions, would like more information, or would like to volunteer, please contact the Director of Youth Ministries, Thomas Cellilli.

Confirmation is a one-year discipleship program taught by the Director of Youth Ministries in conjunction with the Lead Pastor that is intended for middle school students (grades 6-8); however, if you have a student that is in high school and has not yet been confirmed, we encourage the student to join as well. Confirmation gives students the opportunity to learn the church’s history, truths of the Christian faith, and the stories of the Bible, while developing discipling relationships with pastors and mentors. Students learn to articulate what they believe about the Bible and how biblical faith translates into Christian living and responsibility in the world.
