MONDAYS

GriefShare Support Group

Day / Time Location Leader
Monday, 6:30PM Meet Online Allie Garcia, Brenda McGill & Mark Cassidy

It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now.  If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel.

This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before.

GriefShare support groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life.  For more information or to register, click here.  Each GriefShare session has three distinct elements:

Video seminar with experts

Each week your GriefShare group will watch a video seminar featuring top experts on grief and recovery subjects.  These videos are produced in an interesting television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies, dramatic reenactments, and on-location video.

Support group discussion with focus

After viewing the video, you and the other group members will spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in your lives.

Personal study and reflection

During the week you will have the opportunity to use your workbook for further personal study of the grieving process and to help sort out your emotions through journaling.  Your group will spend time discussing questions and comments from the workbook study.

TUESDAYS

Revelation Decoded

Day / Time Location Leader
Tuesday, 6:30PM Meet Online Gil Maza

Confused by the endless speculation about the End Times?  Frustrated at how often predictions about the rapture, the Antichrist, and the mark of the Beast have failed decade after decade, even by some of the most popular Bible teachers?  Is it even possible to actually understand the Words of Jesus as revealed to the Apostle John?  The answer is YES.  Join us as we legitimately “decode” Revelation once and for all.

WEDNESDAYS

Acts: Seeing God's Power in Action

Day / Time Location Leader
Wednesday, 6:30PM Conference Call Tim Dixon

Luke depicts the birth and growth of the early church through about thirty-three years, almost two generations.  He begins with the ascension of Christ and ends with the imprisonment of Paul in Rome.  Along the way he describes the earliest days of the church in Jerusalem, the church’s beginning efforts to reach beyond the Jewish community, and three missionary journeys across Asia Minor and into Greece.  In this study of the early Church Luke introduces ninety-five people, sixty-two of whom are not mentioned elsewhere in the New Testament.

The Book of Exodus (Meet Year Round)

Day / Time Location Leader
Wednesday, 6:30PM Church Patio Scott Hoerner

RAD (Repent.Arise.Disciple) This group desires to glorify God through studying the Bible and authentic fellowship.  Join us as we work through the Book of Exodus… the story of us all. God brings us out of sin and death and into life with Him.  We dig into a chapter each week and discuss it as a group so we can encourage and hear from one another.  Contact Scott at scott@lightcc.org to get connected.

PRAYER: A Key to Life More Abundantly

Day / Time Location Leader
Wednesday, 6:30PM Church, Room 5 Vernon Allen

Nearly everyone reaches a moment, when the only thing he or she can think to do is pray. Tragedy, uncertainly, unrest, fear, insecurity, and trouble can bring even the most self-assured individuals to their knees.  But you don’t need to wait until a crisis looms to begin a relationship with God through prayer. In this study, discover what the Bible has to say about prayer.

Sermon-Based Study

(1) WHAT? What is the context of Scripture? What is it saying?

(2) SO WHAT?  What difference does this make to my life?

(3) DO WHAT?  What will I do with this?  How will I respond?
