Starting Point: 
A Conversation About Faith

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? Welcome to Starting Point – an 8-session small group conversation about faith (guide sold separately). Whether you’re new to faith, curious about God, or coming back to church after some time away, it’s a place where your opinions and beliefs are valued, and no question is off limits. During the eight sessions, you will:

  • Use this Starting Point Conversation Guide to reflect on central questions of faith and life.
  • Watch the video component each week in preparation or as part of the discussion.
  • Explore and share what you’re learning with other people in a conversational environment.

Come as you are and build relationships with others as you discover your starting point.
