Get ready for the AWAKENING at Starting Point!


Awakening is a season of prayer, fasting, scripture reading and worship that we pray will awaken your passion for Jesus Christ!  Very soon people will be making New Year's Resolutions... Why not make a resolution this year to fall more in love with Christ. We believe this year will be your best year if you aim to make it your best year spiritually. Seeking God first is the best thing you can do to strengthen your marriage...get your finances in order...become a better parent...or have the strength to overcome that addiction.  Everything you need to know about Awakening 2013 at Starting Point can be found below!

WORSHIP NIGHTS
Our worship nights are designed to be the highlight of our 21 days of Awakening as a church. The Awakening will culminate each Friday night as we are led by some of the Triangle’s premier worship leaders and we expect the worship of God’s people to explode and change lives in a way we have never experienced at Starting Point. The worship nights will be January 11th (Jake Taylor), 18th (Josh Via), & 25th (Lane Wood) at 7pm at Lifepointe Church – 4112 Garland Drive, Raleigh 27606. 










SUNDAY MORNINGS
On Sunday mornings in January we will be kicking off a new series called “Awakening” where we will speaking from God’s word about how you can have an awakening in your relationship with God. This year we will be studying the book of Job and developing a "theology of worship". We will focus on how we can worship God on both the mountaintops and in the valleys of 2013!

SCRIPTURE READING
Starting Monday January 7th, we are encouraging everyone to read a chapter a day in the Psalms that focus on different aspects of worship.  Attached to this email is a scripture reading guide that will help you give you the passage for the day and guide you in how to understand scripture. We encourage you to read one chapter a day and then put your thoughts down on paper. We also encourage you to share what you are learning at Lifegroup and on our Starting Point Church Facebook page!

FASTING
Starting Monday, January 7th, we are encouraging everyone at Starting Point to join us on a 21 day period of prayer and fasting called the Daniel’s Fast. The goal of fasting is to experience God's presence and grace in our life. The fast is for 21 days and consists of fruits, vegetables, nuts, and whole grains. Remember the next twenty-one days is not as much about abstaining, but pursuing after a God who is infatuated with you.  Attached to this email is an overview of the awakening fast and delicious & healthy recipes!

LIFE GROUPS   
During the 21 days of Awakening we will be having Daniel’s Fast soup nights at our Lifegroups and will have a time of sharing in a smaller environment what God is teaching you.  Lifegroups will resume the week of January 7th. If you are interested in getting plugged into a Lifegroup email raleighgroups@startingpointchurch.com or apexgroups@startingpointchurch.com.
