YOUR QUESTIONS AND DOUBTS ARE WELCOME HERE!  Starting Point is an 8-week gathering where your questions about God turn into a conversation about faith. In a Starting Point group, you can discuss your doubts and explore the trickiest topics of faith, free from pressure and judgment.


At Ringgold Church, we have strived to create a place that is attractive, engaging, relevant, and helpful. 

For Starting Point to be a safe place for people to begin asking the questions they have about God, life, and matters of faith was absolutely crucial. Starting Point was developed to meet people right where they are, to be a conversational environment where people can explore faith and experience community.  

To help clarify who Starting Point is ideal for, we use three different descriptions:

  • New to a relationship with Jesus Christ and looking to build a solid foundation for their faith

  • Returning to a church background and have been away for a while

  • Curious about God, Jesus, the Bible, or Christianity, but do not identify as a Christian

Starting Point is a place where no question is off-limits, conversation is encouraged, and there are opportunities to discuss your questions with others who are on the same journey. 

Spring Starting Point: February 3 - March 24, 2019
