Sundays in AH-211
Diverse Topics. Diverse People. Demanding Times. Learning In God's House Together!
October 2018 Fresh Start. Fresh Format.
October 28th begins iLIGHT's year of...
Knowing God. Knowing Ourselves. Navigating Life.
This October, iLIGHT is making a fresh start with a fresh format! Every Sunday morning join others struggling to navigate the grind, desiring deeper relationships, and longing for life abundant. We will spend the year leaning into God, revealing ways to navigate this seemingly exhausting crazy world with-God, with-purpose, with-hope. The approach will be conversational and relationally focused--we are in this together. iLIGHT will alternate between series of presented topics and of group conversation focused on a particular book. When we find God, we find ourselves. God, through us, will transform the world.
October 28 - November 25 You Are What You Love by James K. A. Smith
We will unpack Smith's bold claim, "you are what you love....but you might not love what you think". This claim is of great significance for Christians trying to navigate a rapidly shifting and demanding culture, for parents trying to form empathetic, community-minded children, and for all looking to be captured by something real. You may purchase the book and begin reading before October 28th. There will be books available in iLIGHT as well.

How We Began...
iLIGHT began on a Sunday morning in January, 2015 and in 4 short months welcomed 90 different people through its door. iLIGHT is an open and flexible forum for people new to such an experience or to seasoned church school goers alike. Please join us this September as we continue to grow, to connect, and to create abundance.Thank you for making iLIGHT’s inaugural year abundant. Abundant? Each Sunday morning the room was a melting pot of ages, of life circumstances, and of spiritual knowledge and experience. Names were exchanged, conversations flowed, and a nurturing community of faith and acceptance was re-created each week. Whether the topic was: how to improve your listening skills, using the Myers-Briggs Inventory to find spiritual balance, finding God in movies, or simply listening to fellow members share their life lessons and faith stories—there was abundance.There was an abundance of laughter, of learning, and of support in a “no expectations” setting. All were blessed with an abundance of shared grace, of shared growth, and of shared gifts.
