LifePoint Student Ministries seek to engage students to help them see Jesus, and trust in what they see. We create an environment to meet students where they are and teach them about Jesus Christ in a way they can understand and respond to His love for them.
Come and worship with us at either service, 9:15 & 10:45. You will also find many of our students worshiping with family, friends and each other. You may also find many of them serving on the worship team, with the tech team, as greeters, as Kids Ministry assistants, and serving communion. Our students aren’t the future of the church, they are an integral part of the church now.
LifePoint Student Ministries
Our youth group meets Sunday evenings 5pm-7pm at the LifePoint building (130 N. 6th St.) in the youth space. A typical service begins with hang-time. We place a huge value on community. Because of this value we’ve built in time for our students to develop deep, lasting relationships with other students and adult leaders to mentor them, alongside you as the parent, in the journey of life. As service starts, students will experience powerful worship to allow them to encounter God in a real tangible way. We play exciting games to build energy as well as develop friendships through healthy competition and comradery. Students will hear relevant teachings so students learn how to find Jesus for themselves when they need him and they can take ownership of their faith. The space is safe for them to ask real-life tough questions. If you are brave enough to ask the question, we are brave enough to answer it. We end the evening by breaking up into Junior High and High School small groups, which we call LifeGroups. This time is designed to allow students the freedom to ask age-appropriate questions and to discuss the topic of the week.
Our small groups meet during the student weekend service as well as on Wednesday evenings from 7pm- 8:30pm in the LifePoint building (130 N. 6th St.) in the youth space. On the weekend, students are broken up into co-ed groups to discuss the topic of the week more in depth, to ask questions, and pray together. Mid-week groups are broken up by grade and gender. LifeGroups are a great way for students to connect with others in a smaller setting.

CIY will be held at Lake Williamson in Carlinville, Illinois from July 30-August 3, 2018. This summer, students will learn about contrasts. Being a Christ follower brings a contrast between light and darkness, belief and denial, love and fear, obedience and disobedience, and love and hate. We will dive into how to differentiate between these contrasts and from them develop the heart and character God desires for us. Students will experience powerful teaching sessions, amazing worship, small group time, and community with other students. There will also be crazy games, recreation times, tons of friends, delicious camp food, and a whole lot of Jesus! Camp costs $399 per student.
