Alpha Program & Small Group Bible Studies
2017 Fall Bible Studies
All Pages
 

Alpha is an 11-week program given once a year, usually in the spring.  It is an opportunity to come and explore the Christian faith, asking such questions as “Who is Jesus?” and “Why did Jesus Have to Die?”  These are only two of the topics covered.  We have a time of fellowship over a meal, which is followed by a time of worship.  Afterward, the group breaks up into small groups where they discuss the topic for that evening.  It is a time to ask questions and to explore the meaning of life.  Close friendships are formed and people grow in their understanding of what faith is all about.  The program concludes with a Celebration Dinner.

In addition, we offer small group Bible studies twice a year - a ten-week program in the fall and an eight-week program that coincides with the Alpha program in the spring.  We try to offer the Bible studies that are designed to follow and enhance the understanding gained in the initial Alpha program and then, for those who have completed these, we try to offer courses that will interest people and draw them into a closer walk with God.
