Explore a Night at Alpha

It’s not too late to join us for the Fall 2019 session on Tuesdays starting October 1st


Is there more to life?

Alpha gives everyone the opportunity to explore the meaning of life in a relaxed, friendly setting. The Alpha course meets once a week for 11 weeks. Sessions begin with a meal, followed by a short talk, and time to discuss the topic.

During the discussion, everyone is welcome to contribute their opinions and no question is considered hostile or too simple.  Questions might include–Is there a God? Why am I here? Where did I come from? Where am I going?

Alpha is for everyone –no question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish.  

We don’t assume any background knowledge or belief in Christianity and everyone is welcome.
