Community Groups

Community Groups, open to all,  are small groups intentionally formed within our FCCGE faith community to bring together people with similar interests in an effort to foster cohesiveness and connection. Right now, we have 15 active groups with many more forming all the time. There are 3 categories, based on level of commitment.

Serve the World

Off-site opportunities to serve our own community and the communities near-by like Northern Il Food Bank

Serve the Church

Would you like to help out at church but don’t have the time for long term commitments? Try out ushering, greeting, serving Communion or hosting the Welcome Table. Easy. Quick. Fun.

Children and Youth

Click here to register for child and youth activities, register for church school or sign up to help out with the children on Sunday mornings.


Social opportunities, like our monthly All-Church Dinners and World of Fun, with church friends old and new.  Most involve eating, which, you know, is a good thing.


Want to sing or play an instrument in worship? Sign up for our Angel Choir (for 4-7 year olds) or contact our director of music ministry, Michele Hecht, to inquire about youth and adult choirs. You can also visit our music page for much more information!
