Our college students and young adults are the best. With both Knox College and Carl Sandburg Community College, plus those who go elsewhere for school and come back, there is a strong presence here. Many volunteer and help our with both our youth and children's programs, with some even taking on leadership roles and responsibilities. Many come from not only all parts of the United States, but all over the world. And though we miss those who graduate and move on, we know they are out there "making disciples of all nations. (Matthew 28:19)"
We have two local colleges in Galesburg, Knox College and Carl Sandburg. Both campuses host a chapter of Intervarsity Christian Fellowship, an intergenerational Christian club. We are partners in this ministry both financially and through connecting with current and former Knox and Carl Sandburg students. It could be a meal after church, a ride to the store, or just a chance to hang out and talk! Our church is only a short walk from campus (even in the harsh midwestern winter). We love our Knox students and the many ways that they are involved and bless our church! Some even stay around and continue to bless us here, while others go all around the world impacting lives for Jesus.
