Illuminate Student Ministries at Community Covenant Church

Welcome to Illuminate Student Ministries! 

Illuminate Student Ministries exists to draw students into deeper relationship with Jesus and each other. We strive to create an atmosphere where students can dive deeper into their understanding of who Jesus is and why they are dearly loved children of the Most High God. 

Why Illuminate? The Apostle John says in the beginning of his gospel that
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being. What has come into being in him was life, and the life was the light of all people. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it." (John 1:1-5) The hope of Illuminate Student Ministries is to help illuminate where Jesus is at work in each and every student's life. 

So much of our lives could use the light of Jesus, and it is our hope that we are able to illuminate the scriptures for your students. Feel free to contact Jeff at if you have any more questions. 

We hope to see you and your students soon! 

October/November News
We are off and running for the school year! We have had a great couple of months in youth ministry at Community Covenant Church. For the month of October, we are in a series called "Flawed Heroes," where we talk about some of the characters in the Bible that we look up to that had some serious flaws. To spite their flaws, God chose to use them anyway. Starting in November, we have a new series entitled "Why is church important?" where we will talk about the role of the church and why it is an important part of spiritual growth. 

Here is the schedule:

October 3: Peer Pressure Story featuring Karyn Sorenson 
October 10: Flawed Heroes - Abraham
October 17: Flawed Heroes - King David 
October 24: Flawed Heroes - The Apostle Paul
October 27: FALL FEST AFTER PARTY (6:30-8:30PM)
October 31: NO YOUTH GROUP - Happy Halloween! 
November 7: Why is church important? - Part 1
November 14: Why is church important? - Part 2
November 21: NO YOUTH GROUP - Happy Thanksgiving! 

Stay tuned for our December calendar and events. 

We hope to see your students soon!
