Discover illuminate

April 8th, 2018

Discover illuminate is designed to provide you more information about illuminate church as well as help you catch the vision for all God has in store both for you and illuminate church. You’ll get the chance to meet and hear from Pastor Tim, hear about our history, and find out why we believe God’s greatest work is still being done right here in Central Florida. By the end of Discover illuminate, you’ll have every opportunity to know what Next Steps to take to get more connected and involved at illuminate church.

The event will be right after Sunday service at approximately 11:30 a.m. at our church office located at 1134 Celebration Blvd, Celebration, FL.

Note: If you register online, let us know the names of all who will be attending and if you will need childcare. Childcare is available for children ages 3-10. This way we will make sure we have plenty of food for everyone and enough childcare workers set to serve the children.

The Cost: Student Spring Retreat

April 13th - April 14th, 2018

$25 - $50

Spring has sprung! This upcoming April we will host 'The Cost', our very first time hosting a spring retreat. Many things about this two day retreat will remind you of Fuge Camps and/or Beach Camp, but the focus is on local students/churches. Another difference is that students will NOT be spending the night in a hotel or host home, but instead their own homes between both event days. We will hold our event from the evening of April 13th into the evening of the 14th.

This camp is all about counting the cost that Jesus paid for each and every one of us, as well as counting the cost of following him with our lives. We know that spring time is a very busy time with club events, athletics, and all-around business. This being said, it is our desire that every one of you would see the value of your students attending this weekend retreat. We believe God will use this retreat as a catalyst for eternal change in our students' lives. We will have two interactive services with high-energy worship and The Word brought by Pastor Calib Turner and Pastor Isaiah Board. We will also have small groups, a total of four meals throughout the event, recreational time, and time to serve our local community. It is going to be an amazing time!

We have tried to keep this weekend retreat affordable so we ask to please make it a priority for your student to attend. This isn't just a weekend of fun, dinners, and messages, although each of these things will be involved. This is a weekend for the love of Christ to impact student's hearts forever and any dollar amount you put toward this is an investment in their eternity.

We want to see everyone possible there!

Date: Friday, April 13 through Saturday, April 14th

Location: 1134 Celebration Blvd (your students will have opportunities to serve our community as well as time at our host homes in small groups, but any pick-up/drop-off will be at our youth room at 1134 Celebration Blvd)

Transportation: You will be the main mode of transportation for your students, but we will have volunteer drivers (with completed background checks) giving them rides to our local events.


If you would like to volunteer as a driver for the weekend we would love for you to do so. Please contact

Baptism is a sacred practice where an individual gets to make a public declaration. In Baptism, each believer gets to tell the world, “I’m in.” In the family of God. In partnership with all Christ follower’s to tell the world about Jesus. In with heart, soul, and mind to support the local church.

Growing spiritually

The Growing Spiritually experience is designed to teach the fundamental steps of growing in Christian maturity. This class will show the importance of studying God’s word, prayer, living within biblical community, and sharing Christ.

Discovering freedom

illuminate U - Discovering Freedom

May 20th, 2018

Discovering Freedom is designed to help you become who you were created and redeemed to be. In Christ, we have the ability to enjoy a high level of spiritual, emotional, relational, and physical freedom. Obstacles such as lack of understanding, fear, and unforgiveness can lead to uncontrolled emotions, compulsive thoughts, destructive behaviors, or broken relationships. All of these hinder our joy and spiritual power. Discovering Freedom teaches and assists us in engaging the power of the Holy Spirit to overcome these obstacles so that we can experience the abundant life that Jesus provided for us.
