Stage of Life Ministries


Are you in your 20's or 30's? If so, we have a Young Adults group just for you! Whether you are married, single, or dating, you are welcome! Our Young Adults ministry meets on Monday nights at 6:30 p.m. (during the school year) in the Cafe room at Highland's Wausau campus for a time of encouragement, prayer, and Bible study. 

Colossians 1:9-14 gives direction as to what our goal as a ministry is.  

It is summed up this way:

  • that we might know God more and learn about His Word 
  • that we might live lives worthy of God and please Him 
  • that we may be strengthened in endurance and patience in our faith
  • that we continue to take the next step in our relationship with God

It doesn’t matter where you are in your journey.  If you want to know God’s love for you and desire to know more about Him, we'd love to have you join us! If you have questions, please contact Pastor Sam DeLoye at 715-842-5683 or .


Our Single Mom's Fellowship is a ministry designed to serve single moms in the challenging, yet rewarding, role they fill.

We believe God is a God of restoration and new beginnings. We desire to encourage community, offer support, and provide hope through a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Lifeboat offers a time of fellowship, encouragement, partnership, biblical teaching, and prayer support. How? By offering an opportunity for single moms to fellowship together. Each Sunday morning during the school year, we offer single moms a Sunday school class just for them. It is held at the Wausau Campus from 9:20 to 10:10 a.m.  This is a great time for single moms to fellowship with one another while growing in their relationship with Jesus Christ.

If you are widowed, divorced, or have never married, you are welcome at Journeys. Journeys—a ministry for single adults over 40—is an opportunity for you to grow in Christ, study God’s Word, find true significance, renew your hope, receive help in overcoming past hurts, learn to forgive and be forgiven, enjoy the company of like-minded singles, and develop genuine godly friendships within this safe environment.

The center of our Journeys ministry is the Friday night study. We meet during the school year from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. in Room B12 at Highland’s Wausau campus. The setting is “casual classroom” and the format is typically a short video presentation followed by lively discussion and prayer. We alternate between the study of a particular book of the Bible and topics of specific concern to single adults. It is not necessary to attend every meeting in order to enjoy the benefits of the class. Join us whenever you can. Journeys also provides periodic activities for fellowship:  movie nights, comedy nights, fire-pit cookouts, bike rides, scavenger hunts, mystery dinners, trips to museums, Christmas parties, etc.

It is not the intention of Journeys to be a place to pick up dates. While we understand that God, in His sovereignty, may bring two people together ultimately leading them to marriage, this is neither our purpose nor our focus. However, when it happens, we celebrate with them and encourage them to move their relationship forward in a godly manner that will bring honor and glory to Christ.
