Explore the meaning of life. This past spring, 70 people completed and were blessed by the Alpha Course Basic. We learned about each other and shared in a small group setting. Relationships were formed, which have continued in a meaningful way. We want to do it again!
If you have not yet attended Alpha Course Basic, we encourage you to join us!
If you have attended Alpha Course Basic, we would encourage you to sign up for Alpha Course Beyond!
Save the dates beginning Wednesday, September 13th through December 13th (on most Wednesdays), from 6:00pm to 8:30pm to explore Alpha Course Basic and Alpha Course Beyond. Please see the bulletin for sign-up details.
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the deeper meaning of life and the building blocks of the Christian faith. The format allows for open questions and discussion, without pressure or judgement. If you already believe, you can also benefit from this course. It can fill in the blanks where you still have questions, in order to reinforce your faith foundation, and you can share your experiences and knowledge with others in discussions. No person is perfect in his walk with God and there is always room to grow.
Each week will start with a meal in the Fellowship Hall downstairs. Eating together is a great way to encourage community and to get to know each other. After the first week, we encourage you to eat with your discussion group to enable you build up your relationships. After the meal, we will move upstairs to watch a video. Each video looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. We will then break up into small groups for the most important part of Alpha, discussion. This is your chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, ask questions, and simply discuss it in a small group. There’s no obligation to say anything, and there are no bad questions. It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly, and open environment.
We hope you can come to Alpha and encourage you to invite a friend, or several friends.
Schedule: Most Wednesdays from September 13th to December 13th, 6pm to 8:30pm
