The Alpha Course for Adults
What's Alpha for adults? Check out this trailer.
Are you new to Christianity? Curious about the spiritual life? Wondering what life is for? Or do you have questions about your faith that you want to explore in a safe space? Then our new Alpha course may be for you.
The Alpha course is offered in many countries across the globe. This relational course creates a friendly space for asking big questions and sharing stories. Weekly sessions will include dinner, a talk via video, and a discussion.
Please also consider inviting a friend, neighbor, or co-worker to join you in participating. Alpha is open to all adults. If you have any questions about Alpha, please contact our Digital Evangelist, Deann Rios or our Pastor, Janine.
The Alpha Course for Teens
During the long months of COVID restrictions, when we called families and teens, we heard from teens themselves or from their parents that they struggle with faith questions. They have a hard time believing in a God that would "let" COVID happen, and they have questions about church and Christianity, too. And why bother to pray?
Alpha for Youth is a well-designed program that offers short videos on spiritual subjects and then encourages discussion of questions. It's suitable for people with no spiritual beliefs, people who have questions about their religion, and people who want to discuss the big questions of life, such as "Where is God in all this?" and "What is my purpose in life?"
On Sept. 28, we will launch an Alpha series for teens aged 13-18. The evening begins with a shared meal and then proceeds with a video presentation and discussion. Youth are invited to bring friends, no matter what their spiritual background. Curious? Check out this trailer!
The series lasts for 10 weeks, and we'll take one week off for Thanksgiving. If you are interested, please email Pastor Janine.
