Illumnate 516 is not only our name, but also our goal and key verse all rolled-up into a single statement of who we are. We are a group of Jr. & Sr. High Youth who want our lights to shine before our family and friends so we can bring glory to God in all we do!

Our Jr. & Sr. High Youth Group meets every Wednesday night from 6:45 to 8:30. During that time we worship, study the Word, play some cool games, eat some food, have fun, fellowship with each other, and sometimes...just hang out! We also have various activities and outreach opportunities throughout the year such as:

  • Operation Christmas Child
  • Snow Camp
  • Church on the Farm
  • Road Trips

All these things are done for the purpose of leading teens to Jesus, equipping them to grow closer to Him, and encouraging them to let their light shine in every aspect of their life. After all, it's in our key verse!

Getting involved in a youth ministry is worth fitting into a crazy, busy schedule! If you have any questions or would like to reach out to our youth leader, feel free to contact Joe Montalbano for more information.
