Welcome to LightSource
Our youth group (grades 6-12) is called LightSource student ministries because we want to reflect the light of God’s Truth and His amazing love to the world around us. This comes from Jesus’ command in the Gospel of Matthew. “Let your light shine” Matthew 5:16.
LightSource Student Ministries are all about helping middle and high school students get plugged in to God and to church. You will connect with other students your age and meet caring adults who want to help you know God better and what the Bible says about real life. You will learn how to share your faith with the world around you and find lots of opportunities in ministry and mission trips. LightSource is active in serving our church family and our community. Join us and make a difference!
