what is a light group?
Light Groups are small groups of 12 to 15 people who meet each week to pray together and share how God’s Word applies in their lives.
Light Groups are the main tool of discipleship in the Light of Jesus Family.
what happens during light groups?
We have four “S” parts in a Light Group Meeting.
First, after a short opening prayer, we always start with a Starter Question.
This makes everyone get to know each other more.
Usually, we ask people to share on God’s blessings the past week. In this way, we build your faith and help you have a positive mindset. Of course, you can share your problems, and believe that God has a hidden blessing in them.
And then the Light Group leader gives a Summary of the topic, plus read supporting Bible passages. Because the Feast is for “outsiders”, the preacher usually doesn’t quote too many Bible passages. But in the Light Group meeting, we can go deeper and read these Bible passages together.
The next part is Sharing how we apply the topic in our lives. People take turns answering a selected question.
The meeting ends with Supplication. People can ask for prayers for specific needs. We then pray for each other.
Wherever they meet, Light Groups usually serve simple food in their meetings. Expenses are shared. Light Groups meet at homes, coffee shops, offices, malls, and fast-food places.
Meetings usually last for one to two hours. Usually, people stick around after the meetings for fellowship.
