The Fellowship Commission’s mission is to strengthen the bonds of YPC’s community through friendship, fellowship, and fun! What a wonderful mission - to enjoy each other’s company!
We assist the church’s disciple-making mission with fellowship events that let us gather and get to know each other in a variety of casual and social settings. We try to have a mix of adult, as well as, family events. The strength of community and knowing your brothers and sisters in Christ is an important part of keeping YPC a healthy church.
Fellowship events in the past have included: a Chicago Dogs Baseball Game, the annual church picnic at Wilder Park, two summer Hot Dog Sundays out on the YPC lawn, Mom and Tot picnics, Outdoor Movie Night, Bears Game party, Progressive Dinner, Road Rally, Hayride, golf outing, the annual Souperoo luncheon, and cake receptions. Other outings that were mission focused included trips to Feed My Starving Children and Phil’s Friends.
We are always coming up with new events, so if you have an idea you would like to share, reach out to Pastor Lauren!
Church Picnic – August 22 - At Church!
Join us for the church picnic after the 11:15 worship service (or around 12:15 pm). Since we’ve been away from our church home so much in the past 18 months, we thought having the picnic at church would be fun this year – a bit of a homecoming! Come and enjoy the fellowship and great eating! The church will provide chicken, dessert and drinks. Please bring a side dish to share that will serve 6 to 8 people. We also suggest a donation of $5 per adult to help cover some of our costs which you can bring to the picnic.
or call the church office at (630) 833-6600. Contact John Udelhofen at if you have any questions. It would be great to see everyone there and catch up!
Silver Cup Golf Outing – September 12
On Sunday September 12, join us at White Pines Golf Course for the annual Silver Cup golf outing! It will be in a scramble format with teams, so whether you’re an expert or a beginner there is a spot for you. A scramble means you don’t keep your own score, but instead you play together on a team using shots from each teammate in your foursome along the way. Tee times will be between 1:30 pm and 2:15 pm. Please sign up on Sign Up Genius or by calling the church office at (630) 833-6600. Contact Rich Peterson at if you have any questions.
Please sign up by August 31. Fore – it will be great fun!
The winning team makes YPC history by having your names engraved on the Silver Cup!
