Class Teacher: Tom Leger

Sign-Ups Required

The Bible Basics class explores the story of redemption from Genesis to Revelation using the BY THIS NAME resource. Be encouraged with answers to questions like:

  • What is the main message of the Bible?

  • Why couldn’t God just forgive our sins without Jesus dying on the cross?

  • How can I know for certain where I will go when I die?

  • How can I share my faith with other people?

Your teacher, Tom Leger along with his wife Lorie have been missionaries overseas and have taught this type of curriculum to many people.

Whether you are new to the Bible or have been going to church for a while, this class is great for everyone!

Date(s): January 8th through May 13th

When: Every Monday 6 pm to 7:30 pm

Place: Church Sanctuary

Childcare Unavailable

See Weekly Schedule HERE

Sign up HERE

Live stream not available due to copyright restrictions

C4 consists of studies that help bring that big picture into focus. It will touch on a variety of subjects that impact how we live our life in Christ. What do I believe? Why do I believe that and can I defend my beliefs? What does the Bible say about: relationships, marriage, parenting, my job or business, my money, government and political issues, the postmodern world I live in today?

We envision that C4 will give even a new believer a solid foundation on which to build – a good overview of the Bible and how to apply it to the issues that face us each day.

Men, there is a battle raging in our culture. With the internet at our fingertips, it has never been more difficult for men to walk with integrity in their thoughts, behaviors, and relationships with women. Pornography poses a dire threat to every aspect of our responsibilities as Christian men. Any form of sexual immorality impairs our ability to function as God has designed us in our role as the providers, protectors, and leaders of our families. Pornography and other sexual sin can destroy the lives and marriages of those ensnared in it.

At Candlelight, we are committed to providing help. We believe that all men are responsible for educating themselves about true Biblical sexuality. Our Conquer program, a 12-week video-based series, aims to disciple and assist men as they find healing and freedom through God’s grace from the bond of sexual sin.

Our next Conquer series begins Friday, January 12 @ 6:30 pm in the upstairs chapel. Join us and find freedom and healing alongside your brothers in a safe, confidential, judgment-free setting.

“A Candlelight Discipleship Class”

Candlelight’s newest class, The Upper Room, will be launching the first Sunday in February! This class is designed for adults seeking a time of profound discussion, fellowship, and study.

Pastor Jason will be kicking off the class by delving deep into what it truly means to follow the Lord Jesus-style. Get ready for in-depth teaching about the core attributes of Christ and be challenged to walk as He walked.

We will be zeroing in on the fundamentals that propel spiritual maturity. Think of it as a seminary for laymen, equipping you to authentically live out your faith.

The Upper Room- the bridge between theory and practice. When faith intersects depth, growth becomes inevitable.

Don’t miss out on the chance to foster spiritual growth and maturity alongside other like-minded believers. Join Us!

See you there!
