The Redefined Student Ministry is a Bible-based, Spirit-filled youth group of middle school and high school students from all over the northwest Chicago suburbs. We meet in Elgin, Illinois, every Friday night from 6:30 to 9:30 pm for worship, a short (and fun!) Bible study, food, and hanging out.

“Redefined was my safe house. I came here even though I hated my life. I came here and I smiled and laughed and forgot about the miserable life at home. Because of Redefined I have become a new person. A better person. I love myself again, and I enjoy life. … Because of Redefined I have lived to the age of 18, which I never thought I’d see. So thank you.”

Feed My Starving Children Food Packing

Saturday, September 12 – 6:30-10:00 pm
We are volunteering a Saturday evening to pack meals for malnourished children all over the world, through Feed My Starving Children. We will meet at Church In The Word and drive to Schaumburg together for our 7-9 pm shift. We’ll stop for ice cream on the way back. Space is limited, and available on a first-come-first-serving (see what I did there?) basis to those who turn in signed permission slips first.
