About One Eighty Degrees (180°)

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, they are a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!” 2 Corinthians 5:17

One Eighty Degrees is the name of the United Methodist Youth Fellowship of the First United Methodist Church of La Grange, IL. It was named One Eighty after 2 Corinthians 5:17, with the idea that Youth Group is a place for Middle School and High School students to support and be supported, while forming new relationships with each other and with God.

In all One Eighty activities, we seek to reach out to the world, connect with other Christians, discover our gifts, grow in our faith, and honor God with our lives.

One Eighty involves weekly meetings, summer small groups, seasonal retreats, local service projects, as well as larger-scale service trips. All One Eighty programming complies with the Safe Sanctuary policies promoted by the United Methodist Church.
