  • Recent Teaching

    Check out our latest sermon: Cultivating a Supernatural Lifestyle (Light Discipleship Series)


    What does it look like today to be a follower of Jesus? In this series, we will answer that question, specifically in the context of the Light Church community. At its core, we believe being a disciple means: Cultivating a supernatural lifestyle where sons and daughters are empowered to be transformed into Christ-likeness and equipped to help others do the same.

  • Connect With Us


    Unique, neighborhood-based community groups. Each home group meets regularly to share food, learn and pray while living out the gospel with one another. These groups challenge us to love each other and live beyond our often isolating, selfish habits. Becoming involved in a home group is one of the best ways people at The Light can experience the kind of authentic community Christ intends for His followers.

    Current group times: Tuesday 7-9pm, Thursday 7:15-9:15pm



    We meet every Sunday at approximately 7pm directly following service for a shared meal. Have some food…make a friend!
