into the world on a mission

Everything we do — whether a fun event or a mission trip (which are fun, too!) — is centered around Jesus. Students are encouraged to attend the weekend worship services (Saturday at 5pm and Sunday 9:15am and 11am) and then gather together every Sunday from 4:30-6pm for age-specific teaching, student-led worship, and small groups — helping students GROW in their relationship with God.

Middle School Ministry

Student Life Middle School is a place where students will find fun, community with each other, and growth in their relationship with God. Middle School students are at a critical place in their life and we want to walk through this journey with them! Every week we will have a high-energy game, worship, an age specific lesson, and an opportunity to dig deeper during our small groups. Questions? Contact Heather at or 217.875.3350.

High School Ministry

Student Life High School is a place where students can grow in community with each other, develop their relationship with God, and learn more about His desire for their lives! In our H.S. group, we have age-specific teaching that allows our students to explore their faith and talk about the big issues in life that they face. Our desire is to create a place where all students can connect with God through worship, teaching, and small group discussions. Questions? Contact Heather at or 217.875.3350.
