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!
FALL 2020 LIFE GROUPS
LIFE LESSONS ON REVELATION BY MAX LUCADO
Melody Easy & Chrissy Rodriguez
Mondays at 6:30 p.m.
Host: Melody Easy
2201 Alpine Trail
Neptune, NJ 07753
The end of the world. How do you react to that thought? Does it make you afraid? Excited? Nervous? Full of anticipation? Full of peace? The apostle John was privileged to preview the end of the world. While in exile, he experienced an amazing vision that gave him a glimpse of Heaven. He saw the final battle of good and evil. He saw God's justice. He witnessed the assured victory for believers in Christ as all Hell broke loose and all Heaven came forth. He saw Jesus, born in a manger, now triumphant over Satan. John's description stretches our imagination, fuels our anticipation, and comforts us as we await the final curtain call.

In this series we’ll explore the art of “adulting.” Walking through how to discern God’s will for your life, and how you can best glorify Him in the areas of career, relationships or not, commitments, and faith. God has a plan for young adults, and will be faithful through the major life changes that occur in the transition between adolescence and adulthood. Through every season, He continues to grow and sanctify each of us as we learn to follow Him and live out our faith as adults.

Using the spiritual applications of confession, prayer, and meditation on Scripture to form a daily connection to Jesus, women will learn how to experience new joy as a child of God who is fully known, fully loved, and fully accepted.
THE BOOK OF COLOSSIANS
Pastor Tim Barber
Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m.
Online Via Zoom
What we think about Jesus matters. Our perception of Him shapes us—what we say, how we treat others, even what we think. If we paint Jesus as any less than who He is as supreme over all creation and savior of the world, not only does our theology slip, but the working out of our faith also suffers.
In this 8-session series, Louie Giglio will take us through the book of Colossians to help us form a complete picture of Jesus. What we believe about Him influences everything from our corporate worship to our relationships to our attitude toward sin. Now alive in Christ, we can live a life worthy of God instead of falling back into the ways of the world.
