"You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead, they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. 

-Matthew 5:14-16

What is Lighthouse?

Lighthouse is the Children's Ministry at the Encounter. It operates on Sunday Mornings at 10:06 and welcomes infants through 5th grade. We have four different rooms: 0-1 years, 2-3 years, 3-4 years, and Kindergarten-5th grade. 

Our goal is to provide a place for children to feel safe, welcome, and loved while having fun and learning the importance of service to others, love toward all, and sharing Jesus and shining God's light to all they know. 

Once per month, Lighthouse teams up with another ministry, S,O.S., to prepare sack lunches for some of the homeless community in downtown Peoria. Each month, our goal is to prepare at least 320 sack lunches.This partnership has brought out a desire and love for serving others in our Kindergarten-5th graders. 

Come check out Lighthouse for yourself and see what makes our kids so excited to come back each week!
