The First Church of Lombard’s Youth Community is the primary high school group at the church. After being confirmed, youth can continue their church participation in the Youth Community. This includes weekly events, and a yearly mission trip, along with several retreats during the year.
The Youth Community meets most Sunday nights in the Youth Room at First Church. The community strives to be a place for high school aged youth to hang out and have a place to go if ever needed.
Each summer, the Youth Community goes on a mission trip. This goal of these mission trips is to show our youth an aspect of life that they may not necessarily be exposed to. Additionally, it is to raise awareness of those around us who may be less fortunate and to lend a helping hand to those who need it.
Past Youth Community trips have gone to: West Virginia, Boston, South Dakota, Atlanta, New Orleans, San Antonio and New York City, to name just a few.
