CONNECT GROUPS

 

Our Connect Groups are essential in fulfilling Lighthouse’s vision and mission. They provide discipleship to people in the context of intentional relationships where sustained life change takes place. These groups are where we share our lives with and support one another as we study the Word of God and pray and serve others. Each group will be hosted by a leader who will challenge you in your walk with Jesus. We are waiting to meet you.

Please sign up today. You will have fun and be blessed!

Interested in leading a Connect Group? Please contact Pastor Dexter at dquito@lighthousemj.com

CIA – CHRISTIANS IN ACTION

LEADER: Jennifer Pelfrey

Every Christian desires to “be right” about their faith. How we live out our faith holds eternal significance. But in order to be right, we must know what, why, and how we believe in Christ. It can be argued that no book of the Bible has had a greater effect on Christianity than the book of Romans. Martin Luther described it as “the most important piece in the New Testament.” 

Location: Gym
Time: Immediately following 2nd service, on 1st & 3rd Sundays 

For more information, or to sign-up, contact Jennifer at fystgirl@yahoo.com or 615-579-4793.

End Times

LEADER: Jane Morrow

Are we living in the end times? What does the Bible say about these times? Is the earth experiencing labor pains? Will believers be taken by surprise at the coming of the Lord? Will believers go through tribulation? What is “the Day of the Lord?” 

This group is largely made up of people throughout the community (not just Lighthouse folks) and we would love to have you join us.

Healing Is God's Will

Leader: Bob Taylor

When we want to understand God’s will about a subject, we go to God’s Word. God’s Word is God’s will. And the Bible tells us that healing is the will of God. The Bible also tells us, “For ever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven” (Ps. 119: 89) and “Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my [Jesus’] words shall not pass away” (Luke 21:33). Healing is a forever-settled subject because God’s Word is forever settled! Come and join as we learn, speak and act on God’s Word. We’d love to have you as we take this healing journey this fall semester. We meet every Sunday upstairs at 9:00am.

 
Locations: Big Classroom Upstairs
 
Times: Meets during 1st Service at 09:00am.
