Kick Start: A Starting Point For Faith

Meets Thursday Evenings and Sunday Mornings. Christian faith, like everything else, has a starting point. But the truth is that for many of us there are just too many questions, too much doubt, too much uncertainty for us to clearly understand what it means to have faith. What, we wonder, is the starting point of Christian faith and can that become a starting point for me and my faith? What we need is a conversation with others who are wrestling through the same questions. Joining a Kickstart group will give you an opportunity to meet with others in a small group environment for a guided conversation about faith. Kickstart groups will meet for eight weekly sessions designed to help you better understand the essence of Christian faith. Whether you’re just exploring Christianity, a new Christian or someone who’s decided to come back and give church another chance, Kickstart may be your starting point. We continually form new Kickstart groups, so register anytime.
