Life Groups are vital to the life of Searchlight Church. Life is better together. God uses relationships to strengthen the church & our lives individually.

You weren't created to do life alone. Being part of a Life Group means having people you can talk to, depend on, and explore God's Word with. Doing life together is not a suggestion in Scripture, but an essential expression of our faith.

 

Life Groups are small circles of people who meet weekly for about 8 weeks to pray for each other, grow in their faith, make meaningful connections, and love like Jesus.

 

Safety is a top priority for our leaders & hosts so in-person groups will be capped and closed at numbers predetermined by our hosts. First come, first serve.

 

We'll see you in a circle!

Pastor Tim Barber
Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m.
ZOOM Life Group
The Christian life - even one centered on grace - can still feel like a long list of do's and don’ts. But, what if there is more (and less) to our faith than we typically believe? In this series, based on the book "A Contrarian's Guide to Knowing God," we will tackle popular assumptions about Christian living that create stress and failure, rather than growth and joy.

Tuesdays at 7 p.m.
ZOOM Life Group
You fear you won't make it through. We all do. We fear that the depression will never lift, the yelling will never stop, the pain will never leave. In the pits, surrounded by steep walls and aching reminders, we wonder: will this gray sky ever brighten? This load ever lighten? In this study we'll see God doesn't promise that getting through trials will be quick or painless. It wasn't for Joseph - tossed in a pit by his brothers, sold into slavery, wrongfully imprisoned, forgotten and dismissed. However, his Old Testament story is in the Bible for this reason: to teach us to trust God to trump evil.
