We have parenting plans available to help you raise your kids with a step-by-step plan for each year of their life. Register your family and each year on your student’s birthday, you will receive a packet that will help focus on one particular area of spiritual formation in your child’s life for that year.  Sign up to receive your Annual Parenting Plan by texting #parentplan to 309-808-6002 and each year we’ll send you your next plan.  Plans are also available as a hard copy at the Family Resource Center or downloadable files below.

Parenting Plans


We believe that Junior High Small Groups are the best way for students to grow closer to Jesus. Students meet on Wednesday nights (September-May) from 7-8:15pm in same-grade, same-gender groups led by dynamic adult leaders who love students and love Jesus.

MIX is 5 day, 4 night event in Holland Michigan for incoming 7th and 8th graders. MIX is dedicated to being an event designed to connect with Junior High students at their phase of life. This event will challenge and inspire our students in their faith, and help them to develop relationships that will last for years to come.





MOVE (Current 8th Graders)

The High School's CIY MOVE Conference is Eastview's summer trip for current 8th-11th grade students. We will spend the week in Wheaton, IL at Wheaton College. The week will include high-energy live worship, some of the nation's best speakers, games, interactive sessions, food, fun, and more.  





Effective Student Ministry isn’t possible without the leadership and energy of committed high school, college and adult volunteers! We have a variety of opportunities to serve on Sunday mornings, Wednesday nights and during trips/events. Contact Jill Karch at jkarch@eastview.church.



Students, we have tons of different ways for you to live out your faith by serving your fellow students. By getting involved in setting up our space, passing for communion/offering, giving meditations, running audio/video, or being on the worship team, we believe that serving will help you grow into all that God has made you to be!
