Alpha

At least once a year, the 10-week “Alpha” course is offered. Alpha provides an opportunity to learn the basics of the Christian faith, both for curious non-Christians and for Christians seeking a better grasp of what they believe. Participants share a meal, discussion, and enjoy a weekend retreat together as part of the experience. Visit www.alpha.org to learn more, and check the church calendar for upcoming dates.
