Did you know that we utilize donated gift cards for gas, grocery, and basics to care for people in our church and community?
The primary way these gift cards are donated is through our annual Women's Christmas Coffee. Last year $8000+ in gift cards were donated and are being distributed all this year by our pastoral staff. The Women's Christmas Coffee is an evening of fun centered on community with a great purpose. We want to offer all women the opportunity to join the team that is planning the Christmas Coffee!
If you are counting the Fridays until Christmas then you already know it is just around the corner! There are many ways to serve. Whether you have a little time or a lot, want to hostess your own table or serve behind the scenes, we have a place for you to make an impact.
Ladies, join us on Sept 15 at 1:30 PM or Oct 15 at 7 PM at the church office to learn about all of the opportunities we have available for you. *You only need to attend 1 meeting.
“If God is real…then what?” That is the question that inspired a movement that is changing the lives of women all over the world. The IF:Gathering exists to equip women with Gospel-centered resources, events, and community so they may learn more about who God is and disciple other women right where they are.
Our Women’s Ministry is so excited to invite you to our IF:Gathering event. As women we long for a space where we feel known, and at our IF:Gathering we will provide an environment for open conversation, growth, and fellowship.
We will have video teachings by Christine Caine, and Table conversations that will help us encourage one another to implement what we have learned.
This multigenerational gathering is for women ninth grade and up. Please reach out into the community and invite friends, family, and neighbors.

Baptism is a sacred practice where an individual gets to make a public declaration. In Baptism, each believer gets to tell the world, “I’m in.” In the family of God. In partnership with all Christ follower’s to tell the world about Jesus. In with heart, soul, and mind to support the local church.
In Baptism we have the joy to be buried in the water as Christ was buried in the grave and then be raised to newness of life. That’s a great celebration!

Nothing says summer like fun, community, and competition. TRIBE Wars is an event created just for that reason! It's more than a one-time event (although that's part of it). It's an entire summer of crazy games, team spirit, and friendly competition. The concept is simple: TRIBES compete throughout the summer (beginning with an Open Ceremonies event) to be TRIBE War Champions. Teams win points by playing games, participating in contests, inviting friends, and showing team spirit.
As women, we crave authentic and genuine connections. We desire a tribe of friends that understand us, lift us up, and have our back. We long for a community of women that make us feel known, loved, cared for, and held accountable. This is what we hope you will find at our women’s retreat, and the truth is, we need you. Yes, you. God made us for community and we truly function better together. Join us as we break out of our routines to receive something more, dig deeper into God’s Word, and pursue Christ together. This retreat is just the beginning of the sisterhood that awaits.
We are so excited to attend the Lifeway Women Live conference in Orlando! Speakers include: Christine Caine, Lysa TerKeurst, Jackie Hill-Perry, Lisa Harper, Mandisa, Kelly Minter, Jamie Ivey, and more.

We believe that when a student fully experiences God and joins arms with their peers, they're a force! After they experience the cross of Christ, they will learn to fight from it. If they are going to be immersed in their culture, families, friends, activities....
Then it's time to see this generation be IMMERSED in Jesus first!

If you're looking for a night out and a safe environment for your children, this is a great night to plan for.

Hello Parent's of new 6th graders. This event is for those that have a child graduating from 5th grade and moving up to 6th grade over the summer. At illuminate youth we want to do our best to assimilate you and your child. That is why we have created this event, so we can share vision for the summer and the upcoming school year. Moving from Children's ministry to youth ministry can be intimidating and we want to eliminate that.
So this is what you need to know:
//If you're a parent of a 5th grader moving up to 6th grade, please sign up all that will attend this event.
//This will help us plan accordingly
//Put on your calendar May 26th from 12-1:30pm to meet us at the church office (1134 Celebration Blvd).
//We will provide food and share our heart for youth ministry.
If you have any questions please contact us (email@example.com)
