Elevate is the 7th – 12th grade student ministry of Bethel we meet on Wednesday Nights at 7pm. But feel free to join us at 6:15pm for preservice prayer followed by hangout time at 6:30pm.
We want to provide a safe and God centered atmosphere for students to enjoy and invite their friends to be a part of. At Elevate we are passionate about growing together as a community of young Christians. Our Weekly Wednesday Night services include hangout time in our Speed the Light Café, a time of worship led by ‘Reverb” our student worship band, engaging sermon and a time of fellowship. Speaking of fellowship, our after-service hangout usually happens at a nearby restaurant in town.
We believe God has called Elevate to SEEK (seek the lost, seek God) GROW (grow in relationship with God, grow in community with others), & SERVE (serve God & serve Others). We are Elevate Student Movement and we want to have an impact in our city, we want to SEEK the lost and invite them into fellowship with us and SEEK after a relationship with God.
We have an ongoing discipleship program Called 3D (discover, develop, deploy) this gives student the opportunity to GROW deeper by being discipled and as a result we will disciple other students.
We get the opportunity to SERVE in Elevate by being a part of the worship team, media team, follow up team or social media team.
If you happen to join us on the 5th Wednesday of the month you might catch us not having regular service. We might be doing a city-wide scavenger hunt, summer Olympics, playing laser tag, having a game night or any other fun activity.
We believe God wants to use our talents while we are young. The students of Elevate actively partake in the Assemblies of God Fine Arts Festival. This is a place where we can discover, develop and deploy the gifts that God has blessed us with.
We are also actively involved in giving to Speed the Light (STL). STL is the Assemblies of God missions giving program for teenagers. Elevate has joined with students all across Illinois and the United States to raise money for Speed the Light. STL provides technical equipment and cars for missionaries.
We can’t wait to have you! In the meantime, check out our Facebook and Instagram page to stay up to date with our upcoming activities.
