Our deepest desire for you in a nutshell

We want to lead you to know and grasp the love of God with all your heart, so you may boldly pursue the person of Jesus Christ, that you may live for Him and inspire others by the power of the Holy Spirit to do the same. 

At ICF there are different pathways for you to engage and grow in Christ

  • Sunday school / Sunday Service
    Due to a lack of Sunday School teachers we have decided to keep all Youth (grades 7-13) in the Sunday Service. We’d like to sit together in the sanctuary and discuss the sermon together for ca. 15-20 minutes after the service. We meet in the cry room.
  • ICF Youth Bible Study
    This new season, we will try to return to in-person bible study. Youth group will meet in the Family room the first three Saturdays of every month from 17:30-19:30. Check out the schedule because there are exceptions due to events, holidays and school breaks.
  • ICF Prayer Evenings
    We’d like to encourage all youth to join the church wide prayer evening which is generally held on the last Friday of every month.

Here are some online resources for you to check out!

Now to the cool stuff

2022/2023 is crammed with events you don’t want to miss. Our events and youth group meetings are the perfect chance to get together with friends, get some headspace, and get closer to God.

The Pandemic has brought many changes in our lives. Last year we moved our Youth Bible Study online, but were also able to meet again on Saturdays. This season we’d like to try to return to in-person meetings only. The youth team will host this group on Saturdays according to above schedule at ICF in the family room.

You will dive into God’s Word with us and experience spiritual truths in a fresh way. Through open and thoughtful discussions, we want to answer the questions you may have regarding God, faith, and challenges you face living for Christ. And we are eager get to know each other better, pray with one another, share praises and prayer requests, worship in spirit and in truth and become closer friends as we meet regularly.

Again, for information on events, please sign-up to our newsletter and contact us to be included.

Who is the youth team?

There are some excellent bible reading plans out there and I highly recommend taking this opportunity to sitting down with God’s Word and reading for yourself. Here are four bible reading plans that I think are a great start. One Year Bible Online Bible Study…
