In the Old Testament, boys were to be circumcised on the eight day. The number 8 symbolizes circumcision of the heart through Christ and the receiving of the Holy Spirit (Romans 2:28-29). Those in Christ are becoming a new creation, with godly character being created by the power of the Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 5:17). The mission for Illumin8 is to equip, empower, support, and encourage youth to shine their light through Christ toward Christ.
Our Lighthouse youth is a place for teens ages 13 to 18 years old to grow in their faith with like-minded individuals. Our youth currently meet on the first and third Sundays of the month during 11:00am service. In their youth group, teens discuss topics that are relevant for today, useful in its application, and enjoyable in its representation. But one thing is for sure- the message is never watered down.
Since being a Christian consists of more than just our church building, our youth have the opportunity to serve in our local community as well as enjoy themselves in fun group outings
