In-depth Bible study groups
LifeLight is a Bible study designed to enable students to experience God more fully through the study of the Bible in a small group setting.
We invite you to join us for an exciting year as we start by studying “Romans” in 2 parts. Romans, one of the New Testament books written by the Apostle Paul, defends the essential teaching of Christianity and its mission to show that we are declared righteous through our faith in Christ and by God’s gift of Grace. There is no way we can earn this by our works. Paul in Romans proves from scripture references that God declares us righteous through Christ alone who is the fulfillment of God’s Old Testament promise of redemption. He shows us that God has made us alive through Holy Baptism and has provided us with access to His Holy Spirit.
We follow “Romans” with a study about “Job” which takes us back to the Old Testament to teach us about patience in suffering. Throughout all of Job’s suffering, he deep down did not give up on God and His Blessings. The ultimate point of Job is that the Lord is the redeemer, despite what we may suffer in this life. People suffer unduly in a sinful and broken world and no one can justify themselves before God. However, God accomplishes His righteous purposes in and through suffering and is our Redeemer.
All of these studies look at what has taken place over the centuries since the world began and what our salvation through Christ is and will be for eternity.
LifeLight’s weekly study also includes a Pastor-led lecture followed by small group discussion & fellowship!
Pre-Registration is required. This can be done by clicking on the “Registration” button in the menu on the right, or by visiting the LifeLight station located in the Commons on designated Sundays or during the week at the main entrance reception desk.
Whether you join us for a nine-week series or the entire twenty-seven week format, God will bless you richly. We hope that you will prayerfully consider joining us for this wonderful and exciting way to study God’s Word.
Yes we do!
The purpose of the LifeLight childcare is to provide a safe and caring environment for children during the hours of LifeLight so that parents can study free of distraction.
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. Parents of infants and toddlers will be given a pager in case we need to contact you. Children, kindergarten and older, will move to the Childwatch rooms and have a more structured schedule than the infants, toddlers, and preschool children in the nursery. Children should be picked up promptly following the small group time from the nursery or Childwatch rooms, depending on their age.

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.
