Alpha will begin on Sunday, Sept. 10. with dinner at 6 p.m.

As part of our fall programming, we are excited to share the news that we will be offering the Alpha program.  You may be wondering what Alpha is.  Here it is in a nutshell.

The Alpha course is an evangelistic course which seeks to introduce the basics of the Christian faith through a series of talks and discussions. It is described by its organizers as “an opportunity to explore the meaning of life”.

Simply put, Alpha is a chance for each one who attends to ask anything and say what they think. We encourage our guests to respond to what they have heard and to ask questions in a safe, non-threatening environment.

Alpha begins on Sunday, September 10th at 6:00 pm and will be held each Sunday night until the end of November (with the exception of Thanksgiving Sunday.) We begin with a sit-down dinner, watch a video and then spend some time discussing what we watched.  It is structured around a relaxed and informal atmosphere that is fun and exciting.

Some of the relevant video chapters include:

  • Why does God Allow Suffering?
  • What about Other Religions?
  • Is There a Conflict Between Science and Christianity?
  • Is the Trinity Unbiblical, Unbelievable, and Irrelevant?
  • What about the New Spirituality?
  • Does Religion Do More Harm Than Good?
  • Is Faith Irrational?…………..and other topics.

We are encouraging the whole church to come and bring a friend or two who may be interested in what Christianity is all about and why you are a Christian.  And just a reminder – there is NO COST! Everyone will need to register so that we know how many people we can prepare for.

If you would be interested in leading a group, please speak to Gail Chartrand or Pastor Patti today.

There will still be small groups meeting throughout the week that you can be involved in.  More info to follow.
