Adult Ministries

Engaging with us beyond the weekend service plays a critical role in belonging to Illuminate. We have several adult ministries where you can get better connected and experience community.

Young Adults (Inhabit)

Graduates, young professionals, single, engaged and young married couples merging their faith with everyday life in the real world. Whether you have just graduated from college and moved to the valley for your first job, or if you have lived in the valley your entire life, Inhabit is a place where you can be known and belong.

Everyone 18 to 35 is welcome – whether you are single, married or a parent, we would love for you to join us for our service on Tuesday evenings at 7:00pm! 

There are opportunities to get to know new people, to grow in the depth of your relationship with Christ, and to serve both in and outside of our church community. We now have childcare available on Tuesday nights, so please RSVP to Scott Martin so we can make sure to have enough workers for when your child comes.

Young Moms

Young Moms is a collective of moms desiring to know God and make Him known. We recognize the unique and amazing role God has given moms. We know that only through our dependence on Jesus and His gospel can we navigate all the challenges of motherhood. Our purpose is to reach our community of young stay at home and working moms with the hope and love of Christ. We come together for Bible study during the school year, friendship and lots of fun. We gather for a monthly evening Bible study during the school year, weekly playdates and a variety of “hangouts” with moms and kiddos. We also come alongside new moms to provide meals, encouragement, and support. We would love to have you come and be a part of our community and join our mission to “be the Light” to the moms of Phoenix and Scottsdale!

Illuminate offers a wide variety of activities throughout the year that men can get involved in. We offer men’s Bible Studies throughout the week on a wide variety of subjects that will challenge and inspire you.  We also have ways to get involved in serving such as working with the Phoenix Rescue Mission and other opportunities to reach out and serve both locally and around the world.  Plus, we have special events planned for our men such as Men’s Retreats and special speakers that will encourage us and offer great fellowship. And if you want to make new friends and get some exercise we offer opportunities around hiking, biking, basketball or golf.  We have something for you!

Cornerstone (55 and older)

There is no exact age when a person becomes a “senior.” We say if you visit our gospel-centered group and are blessed by your experience, you are welcome!  Whether you’re a retiree or soon will be, a grandparent or someone with adult children, married or single, you’ll find a vibrant community that we call Cornerstone.

We have multiple opportunities for discipleship, small groups, volunteering, activities, and social events with other active senior adults who like to spend time in fellowship and service. You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to fit in, because there are no strangers here, only friends we have not met. Welcome to the Cornerstone Family.

Men & Women Mentoring

At Illuminate we truly believe everyone should be poured into so that you can pour into someone else. Open to men and women of all ages, we want to extend the opportunity to join a “Mentor Group” where you can walk alongside a mentor who has “been in your shoes” and wants to encourage you in your walk as a Christ-follower. For more information, feel free to reach out to Mary or Rich Shinar.

Special Needs

We believe it is all part of God’s plan to care, love and welcome children and adults with special needs into our church community. Therefore, we consider it a privilege to offer a fun curriculum in a self-contained classroom with opportunities to integrate with peers.

We provide a well-trained staff of volunteers and caring individuals to make Sunday the best day of the week for your family member. We understand your loved ones have different ways of learning, so we are excited to be able to get to know your family member in a safe, fun, and loving environment where we get to share, learn and explore Jesus with them.

We ask that all parents/guardians/caregivers fill out our SHINE New family form before attending to allow our staff to plan accordingly and equip our volunteers with your information.

SHINE meets during first service at 9:00am on Sunday mornings.
