What is Alpha?
Alpha is a worldwide ministry that provides an opportunity to explore Christianity in a relaxed and friendly setting. Questions like the following are addressed:
Is there a God?
Why am I here?
Where did I come from?
Where am I going?
Who is Alpha for?
Alpha is for anyone... anyone who thinks there may be more to life than meets the eye, both Christians who want a refresher on Christianity as well as others who may be searching for answers.
People attend from all backgrounds, religions, and viewpoints. They come to investigate questions about the existence of God, the purpose of life, the after life, the claims of Jesus and more. Some people want to get beyond religion and find a relationship with God that really change life. Other come for the close, long-lasting friendships that are built during the Alpha course.
What Happens at Alpha
Each gathering begins with a meal or refreshments - a chance to get to know others. Then there is praise music and a short talk which looks at a different aspect of the Christian faith each week. This is followed by a time of discussion in small groups, where everyone is welcome to contribute their opinion and ask questions. People usually stay in the same small groups for the duration of the course so they can get to know each other, continue discussions and deepen friendships. The emphasis is upon exploration and discovery in a relaxed and informal environment.
Praise Christian Fellowship is offering the Alpha Course on Tuesday evenings 6:30 - 8:30 PM at Praise, beginning January 22, 2019. Dinner will be served and it begins at 6:30 PM.
