Generally, they will come together to create simple finger foods to offer the congregation after Sunday services. They hope to create a immediate location for fellowship right after the service.

Design team serves to convert the church's visions into a virtual, visual reality. Team members are expected to be artistically creative.

They are also responsible for maintaining the church's website. If you consider yourself an artist, join the team!
Lifestream Kids is the elementary department of our church. Children would be elementary students who would be taken care of by staff as they cultivate a proper lifestyle starting from a young age. As they learn about the fundamentals of the gospel, staff is expected to interact with kids to excite them and encourage the acceptance of the gospel.
Lifestream Christian Reformed Church's Youth Group is the ministry that teaches and uplifts disciples throughout middle school and high school.
