STARTING POINT

Starting Point is an 8-week gathering where your questions about God turn into a conversation about faith. In a Starting Point group, you can discuss your doubts and explore the trickiest topics of faith, free from pressure and judgment.

Study Overview
Everything has a starting point—your life, your relationships, your education, your career.

Sometimes we forget that faith has a starting point as well. For some of us, our faith journeys began in childhood as a set of beliefs handed to us by a parent, teacher, or pastor. Maybe you developed a framework of faith based on personal experience. Or maybe you had no faith at all. Too often, a faith formed in childhood isn’t strong enough to withstand the pressures of adult life.

But what if you could find a new starting point for faith?

THE ART OF PARENTING

Art of Parenting is an 8 session, video-driven small group series designed to help parents raise their children from a biblical foundation.

During the Art of Parenting, we will cover subjects like:
The Goal of Parenting
Forming Character
Understanding Identity
Preparing for Mission
