Student Ministries | 2023-2024 | Jr. High and High School Programs

By August 22, 2023August 31st, 2023No Comments


At FPGEY Middle School, our Wednesday evening junior high program, students connect with God, the church, leaders who care for them, and fellow middle schoolers. We spend our evenings engaging the person of God by means of friendship, worship, community, and the stories of Jesus. After this teaching time we split into small groups to discuss how it affects our lives.

Wednesdays Sept 13-May, 6:30-8 pm, Gym & Youth Lounge

Confirmation is an opportunity for our 8th grade students to become full members of First Presbyterian Church Glen Ellyn. They are asked to come to weekly meetings where no question or challenge to faith is off-limits. Our goal is to connect students to each other and the church through a 9-month intentional discipleship pathway. If you know an 8th grader with questions about faith, this is the program for them. We meet weekly from 9-10am in room 29.

Sundays, September 16 & 17 | 9-10:15am | Room 29
Register here for the the 2023-2024 program.


FPGEY offers a welcoming environment specifically designed for high school students—it’s a place they can belong while trying on who they are. Here, participants have an opportunity to try on what it means to be a Jesus follower. Students hear about and discuss the person and character of Jesus reflective of the Biblical narrative, and they see how it applies to their life today.

Sundays Aug-May, 4-5:30 pm, Youth Lounge.
