YOUNG ADULTS

OUR HEART

We are a community of young adults who are passionate about life in Jesus. Building relationships, growing deeper in our faith, and having a good time is what we are about!


Our heart and vision is threefold: Gather, Serve, & Celebrate. Those three things are part of our DNA. We believe that when all these things happen true community is built and God's Kingdom glorified. 

PLUG IN (COMMUNITY)

Both of our groups carry the vision of Illuminate with people that are in a similar stage of life you are. Weekly for eight weeks every semester (fall & spring) each group will GATHER (small groups), SERVE (service projects), & CELEBRATE (family dinners).

PLUG IN (INTENTIONALLY)

We believe there are times Jesus calls us to create space for Him to speak. These times are sacred, beautiful, unique, and intentional. They are also times for both groups, college & young adults to come together. Each semester we will have three of these sacred moments together as a whole group:

  • KICK OFF LUNCH

    Jan 21 | 12:30 PM|  directions

    We go all out for these! The name says it all. This is a time to party, to eat, to play, and to simply enjoy life because Jesus loves when his children have fun. Too many times we take life too seriously so this is just an intentional way to create space to celebrate that God is good with some really cool people. 

  • JOINED GATHERING

    March 6 | 7 PM | directions

    The gathering is a sacred and holy time for both college-age and young adults to come together. In our busy lives taking times to slow down and hear from God are can be rare. This is a time to creatively explore our faith through interactions, reflection, silence, prayer, and community. 

  • COLLABORATIVE SERVICE PROJECT

    April 12 | 6-7 PM | Multiple Locations

    On Thursday April 12th we will be partnering with Mission South Side here in Olathe in a service and community opportunity. Here's how it'll work:


    That night there will be two options going on simultaneously. You can sign up to which activity you wanna be a part of. Illuminate will represent at BOTH places, however you only have to pick ONE since they happen at the same time.     

                                       

    • SERVICE & DISCOVERY | 6-7 PM | Directions:
      • The first Thursday of the month MSS gathers about 40 kids/middle school low income kids for a night of food & games. We will bring the sides (MSS will provide the meat), serve the meal, and play a couple games with the kids!
    • WAREHOUSE SALE | 6-7 PM | Directions:
      • This is a time for families in need to come to Mission south side and shop for necessary items such as clothing, food, etc. Our role would be to interact with the families, organize some items, as well as help carry boxes to their cars. Also some of us will be helping mission south side bake some goodies to send home with families!
  • END OF SEMESTER CELEBRATION PARTY

    April 29 | 12:30 PM | Shawnee Mission Lake | Directions

    Let's end with a bang! This is a time to party, to eat, to play, and to simply enjoy life because Jesus loves when his children have fun. Following second service we are gonna go to Shawnee Mission Lake and have a grill out, games, kayaks, and just a fun time outside together!
