Welcome to Starting Point
Many adults have discovered that the basics they were taught about our faith as children do not always stand up to the realities of being an adult. Because of that, there are times we might need a new Starting Point in terms of how we live our faith each day.
This on-line class is designed to help you explore some of the places where there may be gaps between the basics of faith you were taught as a child and the faith you need as an adult. We encourage you to watch the video below to learn a little bit more about what this class is about.
The classes below are in order but feel free to explore whichever topic that interests you. Going in order is helpful but not essential.
Who is Jesus? How we answer that question determines how we approach our understanding of faith and our lives as Christians. This session explores this essential question of our faith.
What does it mean to trust the promises of God? What about the times they don't seem to be true? This session dives into God's promises and how we can better understand their reality.
If God is so loving, then why is there suffering in the world? This is one of the most often asked questions of faith. This session seeks to give some perspective on this difficult topic.
It is hard to imagine a symbol more central to Christianity than the cross. At the same time, it is also hard to imagine a symbol that creates more questions and confusion than the cross does.
