Southwest Community Church is a portable church that meets in Trinity Christian School is Shorewood, IL. Currently we are only meeting on Sunday mornings. During the service, the Youth are with the adults for worship and then are dismissed to go to a classroom for a time of teaching/discussion. We are using RightNow Media for teachings for the Youth curriculum and Orange curriculum for the Kids ministry. The last Sunday of each month, the Youth remain in service with their parents for Family Communion.
