Alpha Course Wednesday evenings

Alpha Course

The Alpha Course is a learning/discipleship opportunity that will be offered on Wednesday evenings within the context of Faith Encounter with a modified schedule.

Description: Alpha is a 10 week course in basic Christianity. It was first developed at Holy Trinity Brompton Church in London (Church of England). The video talks are primarily delivered by Nicky Gumbel, who has developed the course since 1990. Alpha was developed to reach those who are outside of the faith or new to the faith. Over the years Alpha has been used to introduce the faith. It has also been used by those who have simply never explored the essentials of Christianity. It has been used in many denominations (Protestant and Catholic). Some of the subjects covered include; Who is Jesus? How can we have faith? How do we pray? What is the Church? Is there more to life than this?


When: Beginning January 15, each Wednesday at 5:30 - 7:15pm in the Atrium.  The Alpha Course is scheduled to end on March 25. (Note: the is no meeting on March 11, during Spring Break.)

Schedule: Meal, Music, Video, Discussion

Cost: The cost for Alpha Course is free. Donations to the church are accepted to help defray the expenses of materials.
