What is The Lighthouse?
The Lighthouse is a team of adults on a mission to bring hope back to the community of Bunker Hill Indiana by investing in young people. We have weekly gatherings where kids in grades 6-12 eat, play, and learn together. We are like a youth group, but we’re not associated with a specific church. We meet in our recently constructed youth center at the old grain elevator location in Bunker Hill.
A Lighthouse gathering is like a family reunion where everybody wants to be together. We provide a full home-cooked meal every week. We play all kinds of games, indoor and outdoor. Weather permitting, we play a lot of ultimate frisbee and volleyball. The gatherings also include a group discussion or lesson, as well as lots of encouraging music.
