Starting Point for Kids
January 21st - January 28th, 2018
Starting Point for Kids, formerly advertised as I’m A Christian Now, is an in depth and comprehensive study for helping children (Grades 1-6) understand the decision they have made and what it means to live a Christian life. This class is designed for children who have made recent professions of Faith – this includes those who have not yet been baptized and those who have.
Topics covered include: Baptism, The Lord’s Supper, Being a church member, Following God through one’s actions and Developing a quiet time.
We have found that children feel less pressured and are more open to discussion in a class setting. Much like Starting Point is the membership class for adults, Starting Point for Kids is catered to help children understand what it means to follow Christ and be a part of the Body of Christ.
This class will meet during the Sunday School hour (9:45 am) during January 14-28. If you need to miss a Sunday, you can make it up with Leah Frances at another time.

No Other gods by Kelly Minter.
Often, idols are obvious—money, power, fame. But subtler idols can sometimes take the form of loved ones, Instagrammable interiors, and busy seasons of work, motherhood, or ministry. But if your heart is prioritizing any of those pursuits before God, you're missing the unrivaled joy and adventure of Jesus being your heart's ultimate treasure.
In this 8-session study, learn to identify the functional gods you may be unknowingly serving and the lies they tell. As you dethrone your modern-day idols, you'll be set free for the deeper, more abundant life Jesus came to give you—discovering that Jesus can do what no other god can.
Kay Martin will be the leader for this study please. Books can be purchased for $10.
