Dear Illumin8 Students and Parents, 
                My name is Jonathan Atkins and I lead the Wednesday evening Illumin8 programs. This is my second year leading this program and I am excited what God has in store for us all. The end of last year was definitely different and a learning experience. I hope that you have seen God at work even in these uncertain times.
I wanted to take the time and welcome you to a new school year. I hope that your school year has started off well. Whether you are learning from home or going to school, this year has been and will look very different. I want you to know that you all are prayed over   daily. My prayer is that you not only grow in your learning at school, but also with your relationship with Christ.
I also want to personally invite you to Illumin8. We would love to see your smiling    faces on Wednesday evenings during the school year. We meet at the church from 6:00-7:30 every Wednesday evening starting Sept. 9th (if Forsyth School is not meeting in person, we will move to doing Illumin8 virtually so keep an eye out for any updates). Please join us for a time of fellowship, fun, and most of all the chance to build on your biblical foundation and your walk with Christ.
Know that we don’t take the fact that you’ve entrusted us with helping shape your child’s worldview lightly and are honored to work with each of your children.
Jonathan Atkins

Illuminate Ministry

Illuminate is our preteen ministry at First Baptist. It is for students who are in 5th & 6th grade. It is a transitional ministry between our Children's Ministry & 412 Students. On Sundays Illuminate meets in The Underground & uses The Gospel Project for Students.  On Wednesday nights, Illuminate meets in the Fellowship Hall.   Starting this year Illumin8 leaders will use Forge curriculum for middle schoolers.  Wednesday night gatherings consist of large group teaching, discussion time in small groups, and other activities.
Illuminate will have several service projects and fellowships throughout the year. They attend CentriKid Camps during the summer.
The goal of Illuminate is to reach, equip, and disciple students and families to understand not just the “what” but also the “why” of the gospel and its implications in the life of every believer (godly character, healthy relationships, love for others, prayer and Bible study, living on mission).
