Childcare is offered during LifeLight on Thursday mornings from 9-11am. All children will need to be checked in/out of the nursery. Parents of infants and toddlers will be asked to leave a cell phone number in case we need to contact you. Children should be picked up promptly from the nursery following the small group time.
Childcare is offered during LifeLight on Thursday evenings from 7-9pm. All children will need to be checked in/out of the nursery.

First Series: – Ezra/Nehemiah-Sept. 5th, 2019
The book of Ezra provides a much-needed link in the historical record of the Israelite people. When their king was dethroned and captured and the people exiled to Babylon, Judah, as an independent nation, ceased to exist. The book of Ezra provides an account of the Jews’ re-gathering, of their struggle to survive and to rebuild what had been destroyed. Through his narrative, Ezra declared that they were still God’s people and that God had not forgotten them.
Nehemiah was a layman, not a priest like Ezra nor a prophet like Malachi. He served the Persian king in a secular position before leading a group of Jews to Jerusalem in order to rebuild the city walls. (www.insight.org)
Second Series: Worship–November 14, 2019
Based on their own experience, many Christians might wryly remark that they went to a fight and a worship service broke out! It is true that many battles have erupted over questions of worship. Though sometimes the issues are petty, oftentimes they are not, for they get at the core of what worship is and does.
Third Series: Timothy/Titus/Philemon-Feb 6, 2020
The books of 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, and Titus are known as the pastoral Epistles because they contain instruction to help leaders regulate the Church. Paul warned Church leaders of perilous times to come and counseled them regarding the destructive influence of false teachings. He taught that the holy scriptures are the source of sound doctrine and instruction.
Paul’s letter to Philemon provides readers with a poignant illustration of how seeing fellow believers as our brothers and sisters can increase our willingness to forgive them when needed.
LifeLight at Bethlehem offers the Pastor’s Lectures on the latest study online! Click the video below for the latest study, or click the “LifeLight Archive” button to see previous lesson videos.
The LifeLight Ministry’s success can be traced back to its structure. The program brings together four components that provide the Bible study student a good framework for growth. LifeLight fosters an environment of strong discussion and thought provoking questions. Review each component below to see how the LifeLight Bible study is organized
Look over each component below to get a better sense of how the LifeLight bible study is organized.
Students receive a study lesson for each class. The lesson contains a hymn, prayer, and other worship resources in addition to readings and study questions for five days. The students are asked to complete the lesson at home before the weekly class. If the student is not able to complete the lesson, they are still encouraged to attend the class.
Not all of the study questions are created equal. Questions range in difficulty and students are challenged to apply the word of God while other questions ask the student to look introspectively and examine their heart.
Once a week, after studying at home, students gather in their assigned small groups and discuss the lesson together. Classes vary in composition from all women’s and men’s groups to groups of married couples. The composition of each group varies from lifelong Christians to “baby” Christians. This variety is mentioned by many veteran students as one of the key successes of LifeLight. They often find that anyone can have a positive impact on their study of God’s Word.
Before the small group discussion, all students meet together and listen to a lecture presentation on the portion of scripture that was studied during the past week.
These lectures are performed by one of the pastors on staff at Bethlehem. The pastor brings together the history of the text and explains how the text ties into the Gospel of Christ. Very few people leave the lecture not having learned something new.
A magazine is passed out at the beginning of each nine (9) week series. These are distributed during the small group meeting time. The magazine contains maps, graphs, charts, pictures, and other visual aids as well as supporting narrative that helps the student review the lessons being studied.
