What’s Going On at Light and Life


People Under Construction

New Sermon Series

  • It’s frustrating to wait for something to get done. Whether it’s something you’re cooking or something you’re building, we’re anxious for it to get done so we can enjoy it. That even happens with us :  we keep expecting that soon, we’ll be done, we’ll have it all together, we’ll be a healthy, whole person who can enjoy all that life has to offer. While we’re waiting, we focus on the part of us that isn’t done, and we have this sinking, fearful feeling that God is focused only on that part of us which just isn’t done yet.In the series PEOPLE UNDER CONSTRUCTION, we will look at individuals in whom God built character qualities we all need to feel complete, to feel healthy and whole. We’ll learn to focus upon what God is building in us, rather than be stymied by an unhealthy preoccupation with our failures, with those areas where we’re just not done yet.
  • PEOPLE UNDER CONSTRUCTION begins on Sunday, April 19. Plan now to attend all six of these powerful messages that will become a part of God’s work in building you into the man or woman He wants you to be.
  • The tone of the scriptures, however, is that God is focused on what He is doing in you, focused on what you are allowing God to do in you. In His word, story after story reveals men and women under construction, people being built by God into someone that even He rejoices over and says, “Well done!” about.

Young Adult Ministry

Life can get complicated once you cross that nebulous threshold into adulthood. There are complicated decisions. Bigger stakes. Serious relationships. And a whole lot more decisions. The young adult group of Light and Life Church provides a welcoming atmosphere for college and early-career aged young people.


Often, small groups of people are better able to interact and learn about a topic than larger groups are. For that reason, Light and Life Church has small bible studies held in member homes. The size of the group is anywhere from six to twelve. At a time, designated by your group, you can participate in the small group study. 


Online Giving

Thank you for your generosity. Giving to Light and Life Church is an investment in eternity because lives are being changed. We are here to help people take their “next right step’ with God. It is our desire to honor God by using His resources wisely and for His purposes. We operate within His provision and recognize our responsibility to manage the resources He provides with integrity and faithfulness. Thank you for your support.
