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
Cornerstone (Youth Worship Service: Sun, 10:00am):

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.
Movement seeks to glorify God by BEING disciples of Jesus Christ who MULTIPLY disciples of all nations.
Discipleship is the journey of being a disciple. We believe that college is a crucial time for growing in discipleship both as an individual (aka, “owning your faith”), and also just as importantly, growing in discipleship in community. College is the time when men and women begin learning what it means to be active participants in the movements of their local church and become lifelong Christians who understand God’s sovereign movements in the world around them. We desire for all of our students to graduate from college with a Spirit-empowered transformation to love God and love his people, being trained to understand, process, and respond to the world around them with Godly wisdom and discernment. We in Movement walk together through this journey of discipleship. Come and join us as we grow together!
In session throughout the year (quarter system):
College Hour: 12pm-1pm @ Lakeview
Bible Study: 7pm-9pm @ Northwestern Campus
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.
