“What is Alpha?”


Jesus says that I am the Alpha and the Omega (or the beginning and the end). The Alpha program is the beginning.   It is the beginning or starting place of our Christian faith.


Alpha teaches Christianity 101. It teaches the basics of Christianity. This is for people who have NO knowledge of Jesus, the Bible, or Church. It is for those who have some knowledge, but want to brush-up. No question is too simple or too hostile.


The program is Informal. You will NOT be pressured in any way. No one will be “put on the spot.”  

You grow at your own pace.


Who should attend Alpha?


Wide variety of people!

Un-churched friends, neighbors, co-workers of church family.
