The Alpha course is coming. . . . .
A bit about Alpha. . . . What is alpha? Alpha is a worldwide phenomenon. It’s found in over 169 countries. It’s run in tens of thousands of schools, prisons, homes and churches of all denominations. It’s given more than 19.6 million people the opportunity to explore the meaning of life. Perhaps it’s just what your community – and your church – needs.
Our version will feature a dinner at 5:30 PM followed by an Alpha presentation and small group discussion concluding at 7:30 PM. Nursery is provided free of charge as is the dinner. We will meet on Monday evenings beginning September 8 and continue for 11 weeks.
Information covered: The Alpha course covers the basics of Christianity. It answers questions like: Who is Jesus?, and Why did he die? The Alpha course usually lasts 10 weeks, with a day or weekend getaway in the middle. Each week, guests gather for about two hours. They share an informal meal, sing a few songs, listen to a talk on how Christianity approaches the question at hand, then gather into small groups for discussion. The talks each week act as a springboard for small group discussions.
