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.
To get the most out of our small group experiences, 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!

Everyone faces disappointments, obstacles, and circumstances that seem impossible to overcome. Whether it's a struggling marriage, health crisis, financial loss, wounds from our past, or something else altogether, life's struggles leave us desperate for a breakthrough.
God sees you, hears your cries, and is ready to respond. But breakthroughs don't happen spontaneously - they happen when you seek them. And the way you seek them is through prayer.
HOPE FOR THE HURTING - BOOK STUDY BY PASTOR TONY EVANS
Sherry Johnson & Mary Kohler
Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m.
1710 Hwy 71
Life is painful. Its unique challenges, difficulties, bumps, and bruises can leave us lost and drowning in their wake. But Jesus said, "In this world you will have tribulations..." He did not say we might have troubles and difficulties, but we will. In this Bible study, Dr. Tony Evans offers spiritual principles for facing such pain and hurt with a biblical perspective. Love and happiness are on the other side if we learn how to walk through the hurt with both peace and joy.

GALATIANS BIBLE STUDY - Via Zoom
Pastor Tim Barber
Thursdays at 6:30 p.m.
If someone asked you to explain the gospel, what would you say? What is the good news of the Christian faith? Writing to the Galatians, Paul made it clear how easily we can be tempted to turn toward fraudulent gospels, especially those that teach we can earn God’s love through our works. How easy it is to add to the Gospel. This Bible study through Galatians will help us love and embrace the true Gospel of Jesus that brings and gives & sustains life.
