Starting Point

The Fillin' Station (map)

Starting Point
Tuesdays, Feb. 6-Apr. 3
6:00-8:00pm @ the Fillin’ Station, 630 S. Front St, Mankato

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. 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. What if you could find a new starting point for faith as an adult? Whether you are new to faith, curious about God, or coming back to church after some time away, Starting Point is a place where your opinions and beliefs are valued, and no question is off limits.

This is an opportunity for all of us to invite a friend, a co-worker, a neighbor, a family member, and do life and faith with one another. Click here to learn more.

Movie Night at Crossview
Friday, Feb. 8

Winter is a good time to stay warm inside and watch a movie, so come to church and enjoy a movie together! We will provide the popcorn and refreshments! After the movie we will have a brief discussion on how the film ties to our faith. This is a great event to invite others; you can come to one or both! For licensing purposes we cannot state the movie titles online, but feel free to ask Community Life Pastor Aaron Thompson and he would be happy to tell you. Both movies are PG-13.
