If you want to explore faith, but aren’t so sure about showing up at church, we understand. And maybe you want to do some exploring on your own first. If so, we’ve put a few links below to messages and teaching series we’ve done that might answer some of your questions. We’ve also provided links to a few books that could help in your exploration.
In addition to the below resources, we also offer a blog at VerveCatalysts.org. The Verve Catalysts blog provides a daily Bible reading plan to help you know where to start. And every morning, a post goes up that explains what’s going on in the reading for that day.
But could we suggest you consider showing up at Verve? We provide a safe place for skeptics to ask their questions. We know many people have been burned by church experiences in the past. It’s a place for you to explore authentic faith in a very real God, and begin experiencing God for yourself. You can be anonymous, and you’ll be sitting in a room with lots of people who have doubts and questions and are trying to figure it all out.
