Bible Study Growth Groups

Growth Groups are a great way to connect and fellowship with other Christians, grow in God’s Word and in your relationship with Christ, and be encouraged and supported through prayer.  Most growth groups meet weekly September through May and take a summer break.  Be sure to plug into a group of your choice today!  If you have questions, contact Jan Kiehl at 760-726-0590, ext. 18 or jan@lightcc.org.

Day / Time Location Leader

Tuesdays

The Book of John (Men’s Bible Study Breakfast)

Day / Time Location Leader
Tuesday, 7:00AM IHOP Restaurant, 4253 Oceanside Blvd., Oceanside, CA Lee Gillogly

John is the “Disciple whom Jesus loved”, and the book was written about 50-85 AD for the Gentile believers and seeking unbelievers.  Come gather with the guys for this time of study, prayer, fellowship and food.  What a great way to begin your day! 

Experiencing God

Day / Time Location Leader
Tuesday, 10:00AM Church, Rooms 5 & 6 Jerry Carey

God is inviting you to experience Him in an intimate love relationship through which He reveals to you His will, His ways, and His work.  Through the biblical principles in this course, God can teach you how to know when He is speaking to you; recognize His activity around you; adjust your life to Him and His ways; identify what He wants to do through you; and respond to His activity in your life.

Revelation Decoded

Day / Time Location Leader
Tuesday, 6:30PM Church, Rooms 5 & 6 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.

ABC (Answers, Bible, Curriculum)

Day / Time Location Leader
Tuesday, 6:30PM Church, Room 11 Tim Dixon

ABC provides a thorough understanding of the authority and primary teachings of Scripture.  Be equipped to defend the Bible, and become conformed to the image of Christ, as you apply God’s Word in your everyday lives. This three-year program covers the entire Bible in chronological order.  Answers Bible Curriculum can be started or paused and restarted at any time throughout the year without losing valuable lessons.  You may start this class at any point in the study.

Wednesdays (Childcare provided for parents attending Wed. evening groups.)

The Gospel of Matthew

Day / Time Location Leader
Wednesday, 6:00PM Church, Room 11 Mike Openshaw

What would it be like to be discipled by Jesus Himself?  What would He teach you about relationships, priorities, wealth and His coming kingdom?  What would you learn from His actions?  Matthew’s Gospel brings you face to face with Jesus as He calls, teaches and prepares His disciples.  As you work through this study in Matthew, you can become one of those chosen followers.

The Gospel According to Luke

Day / Time Location Leader
Wednesday, 6:30PM Lewis Home Scott Hoerner

RAD (Repent.Arise.Disciple) This group desires to glorify God through studying the Bible and authentic fellowship.  Join us as we dig into the Gospel of Luke and come face to face with Jesus, who He is, what He has done, and how it radically changes our lives.

Crazy Love

Day / Time Location Leader
Wednesday, 6:30PM Smith Home Bob Balch

It’s crazy, if you think about it.  The God of the universe loves us with a radical, unconditional, self-sacrificing love.  And what is our typical response?  We go to church, sing songs, and try not to cuss.  God is calling you to a passionate love relationship with Himself. Because the answer to religious complacency isn’t working harder at a list of do’s and don’ts—it’s falling in love with God.

Thursdays

James: Mercy Triumphs (Ladies Group)

Day / Time Location Leader
Thursday, 9:30AM Church, Room 4 Lura Black / Cathy White

James, Jesus’ own brother, started out as a skeptic.  See how one glimpse of the resurrected Savior turned an unbeliever into a disciple.  Bible scholars compare James to the prophet Amos.  In other ways, James more closely resembles the Book of Proverbs than any other New Testament book.  Topics in this Beth Moore video study include: joy, hardship, faith, reversal of fortunes for rich and poor, wisdom, gifts from above, single-mindedness, the dangers of the tongue, humility, and prayer.

Sermon-Based Study

Day / Time Location Leader
Thursday, 6:30PM Bruce Home (even months) & Marcon Home (odd months) Chris McKinney

A sermon-based study to help people better understand and act on Sunday messages while building relationships through Bible study and fellowship.

This group meets at the Bruce Home during even months and the Marcon Home during odd months.
