Life Stages ministries
At Lakeview, we believe that community is essential for discipleship so we highly encourage everyone to be part of a life stage will allow them to mature spiritually and grow relationally. Within the English Congregation, our life stage ministries include:
• Zion(youth group)
The goal of each life stage ministry is to live out our vision of Transformation NOW so that Jesus Christ will be exalted in our community and beyond.
In a fun and loving environment, Kidsland provides age-appropriate programs from nursery to 5th grade every Sunday during morning worship services. The staff and volunteers create a safe and fun atmosphere so that kids can learn practical lessons from the Bible and begin to develop their relationship with God.
If you’re having trouble finding the right spot for your child, just ask any welcome host or volunteer, and they will direct you to the right place.

REGULAR WEEKLY EVENTS
Unwind (Fri, 7:30pm – 9:30pm)
Every Friday night we invite you to come out and unwind with us at the end of the school week. Join us for food, games, or just a place to hang out on Friday nights from 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM. A short Bible study provides an opportunity to see what the Bible has to say about your life. Once a month we like to mix things up with movies, bowling, and other activities. Come out and see for yourself all that Lakeview has to offer

Enjoy the musical worship of the 10:00 AM LNB Sunday Service, then gather with us in the Youth Room to hear how the Bible impacts you afterwards at around 10:30 AM.
LAKEVIEW YOUTH IS A YOUTH MINISTRY THAT DESIRES TO GLORIFY GOD BY TRAINING THE NEXT GENERATION OF JESUS’ CHURCH. WE DESIRE TO MAKE DISCIPLES OF ALL JUNIOR HIGH AND HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS BY TRAINING UP THE NEXT GENERATION OF CHRISTIANS AS THE BIBLE TEACHES. LAKEVIEW YOUTH IS THE PLACE TO EXPERIENCE SPIRIT-FILLED WORSHIP, BIBLICAL PREACHING, CHRIST-CENTERED FELLOWSHIP, AND THE LOVE OF CHRIST IN A MULTICULTURAL SETTING COMPRISED OF 6TH-12TH GRADERS.
Christ-Centered: We desire to live “in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ” (Phil 1:27). We seek to be intentional about not being driven by our own human impulses, but to be centered around the person, ministry, and gospel of Christ.
Covenant: We are a part of the covenant people of God. Therefore, we ought to live like it. We are not simply an affinity group or a clique. Our unity is not sustained by preferences and convenience, but by our faithful response to a sober, effortful awareness of the love of God shown through his covenant in Jesus Christ (Jer 31:33), both in Movement, in Lakeview Church, and beyond.
Community: We do life together – not only on Sundays when we gather, but through constant on/off-campus fellowship. We want to be a community that pursues daily greater love of God and of people, despite what conflicts and challenges may arise. “He has committed to us the message of reconciliation” (2 Cor 5:19) – reconciliation with God that also results in harmony among the reconciled people.
Come journey with us as we do life together and learn what it means to be disciples of Jesus Christ!
College Hour: Sundays 12:00pm – 1:00pm
Catalyst(Young Adult) Ministry
The objective of Catalyst is to facilitate community within the young adults at Lakeview. Those of us in our twenties and thirties face unique challenges in work, family, and friendships, and we believe that real relationships help us to navigate these challenges in a God-honoring way.
Please check out one of our life groups! There are two in Northbrook and one in Chicago that meet weekly.
Catalyst also meets as a whole every second Sunday of the month for RealTalk.
