Where Do I Start?
Starting Point is a four-week conversation about taking your faith journey. Whether you’re new to faith, curious about God, or wanting to understand how you fit in the local church, it’s a place where your opinions and beliefs are valued, and no question is off limits.
If you’re new to Elevate Life, new to faith, just checking it out, or coming back to church after some time away, Starting Point is a great first step for you to take.
Who Is Starting Point For?
Anne is new to faith and church. She loves the music, the teaching, and the ability to come as you are. She is ready to learn about what it means to be a Christian and build relationships with other people of faith.
John is a Christian who is new to Elevate Life and is ready to get involved. He is ready to get involved in the local church but he doesn’t know where to start. He needs to discover where he fits in the church.
Veronica has attended Elevate Life for a while. She met Jesus here and was baptized here. She comes to church every week but is struggling to figure out what’s next for her. Veronica is ready to connect to people who will help her find and take next steps in her walk with Jesus.
What To Expect
Starting Point is a small group conversation with four distinct steps to help you learn about Jesus, Elevate Life, who you are and where you fit. It meets every Sunday during the 9 AM service. You’ll get a chance to connect with people from your campus and ask questions. We’ll talk about your questions about God, Jesus, The Bible, Sin, The Church and more.
No matter where you are in your faith journey, or how long you’ve been in church. Starting Point is your place to get started!
Wondering about your kids? Your campus has a childcare option for babies through fifth grade. Kids sixth grade and older are invited to participate in Starting Point with you!
