Young Adults

Ages 18-Late 20s

Kingswood Young Adults are those who are 18 through late 20s from both the Buffalo Grove and Deerfield campus looking for ways to connect in both faith and in fellowship. We are committed to being welcoming of all young adults in all walks of life.
Whether you are single, in a relationship, off at college, in the area going to school, working, or are just trying to figure life out--this group is for you!

Connect with us on our young adult Instagram page!

Young Adult Fellowship

You're too old for youth group but too young to get involved with some of the current life groups...where do you go?
Interested in learning more? Reach out today!
Wells are used to represent some pretty incredible things throughout the Bible: opportunity, community, sustenance, life, salvation, encounter, revival, healing, and relationships.
"With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation." Isaiah 12:3
The Well gathers on Wednesday nights from 7:30-8:30 pm at the Buffalo Grove campus.  You do not have to commit to all of the dates, come when you can and bring friends! (Digging deeper discussions includes watching a video, checking out Scripture, and discussing some guiding questions about faith in our lives.)

Children, Youth, & Young Adult Survey

We want to hear from you!
We would like your feedback and input into elevating this already incredible community! The more information you can share, the better! We will use this information to help guide us as we move forward. This survey is adaptive, meaning the question sets will change based on some of your initial answers. This survey should take about 5-15 minutes to complete depending on your pathway and how detailed your answers are.

Young Adult Note: Most questions are geared towards children and youth but be patient, there are some questions specifically for young adults!

Every survey completed by May 26 will be entered into a raffle to win a prize! Our hope is that every family completes this survey along with all youth and young adults (beyond their family response).

May is Mental Health Awareness Month!

More than ever, mental health is so important in ALL of our lives.  We face each day with more input and information than ever before and it can feel overwhelming without even realizing that it's overwhelming.  This constant bombardment of distractions and information is "normal" for us.  We must learn to find time to take a break, unplug, and seek peace.

Prayer and time with God can be a HUGE gift to our mental health, but it doesn't stop there.  God is an amazing provider and gives us many supports and resources to better our mental health.
