Home Groups


The purpose of Home Groups at Candlelight is, simply, to BE the Church. We gather in homes on a weekly basis to share our lives with one another. We pray for one another, come alongside one another through the mountain tops and deepest valleys of life. We challenge one another to live out God’s Word, and to share Christ’s love with everyone we meet. This is where we ARE the Church!
