Starting Point: Seekers, Starters, Returners
On-site at Dickson City & West Shore (Sunday Mornings)
Starting Point is a multi-week group exploring the Christian foundations of faith in an environment where people can be open, honest, and transparent. Conversation-focused, Starting Point allows you to ask the questions you’ve always wondered about but never felt you could ask at church.

The Three-Mile Walk: The Courage You Need to Live the Life God Wants for You
On-site in York Area (Wednesday mornings at 7:00am)
We are all called to be change-makers in the world, and yet many of us don't know how to answer the call. Jesus Culture founder and pastor Banning Liebscher reveals the three key moves that will awaken your heart and propel you into a life of divine purpose.
Groups are for Creatives
Mean Cup in Lancaster City (Thursday mornings from 7:30-8:30am)
Each week, we will listen to a podcast episode on a different creative topic, come ready to discuss thoughts from our own individual perspectives and experiences, and figure out how our faith works in all of it!
Leadership and Connection for Business Owners
Happening online (Thursday mornings at 8:00am)
Entrepreneurs & Business Owners - Survive in business without losing your faith. Grow with other entrepreneurs and business leaders experiencing what you experience.
Play with Fire
Happening off-site in the Harleysville area (Monday's at 7:00pm)
In this five-session Bible study, Bianca Olthoff shows how God used fire in the Bible to reveal His presence to His people, lead them, refine them, and empower them. God uses that same ”fire” to burn away things in our lives that get in the way of His purposes—so that we can rise from the ashes and experience His new life.
Groups for Caring and Healing
It's OK That You're Not OK
On-site at Lancaster City (Monday's at 6:30pm)
We'll learn from author and therapist Megan Devine who offers a profound new approach to both the experience of grief and the way we try to help others who have endured tragedy. Together we'll debunk the culturally prescribed goal of returning to a normal, "happy" life, by replacing it with a far healthier middle path. As we work through this book together, we'll be invited to build a life alongside grief rather than seeking to overcome it. No matter what tragedy or hurts you've gone through in your life, or those in your life have gone through, this perspective and group experience will help us all in taking the best path forward.
Chasing Love - Online Care Group
Happening online (Thursday's at 7:30pm)
This study explores the heart of God through his word in order to develop an understanding of how to navigate the world and relationships. Broken hearts and sorrows are part of life, but how we respond to and recover from them rely on our understanding of God’s promises. Each week we will dive into the heart of God, how he sees you, and ways you can guard your heart and faith as you follow Jesus.
