WHAT IS ALPHA?
The Alpha course is a practical introduction to the Christian faith that gives guests an opportunity to explore the meaning of life. Alpha is fun, relaxed and totally non-pressured (that's probably why over 27 million people around the world have already done it!). Listen, learn, discuss, and discover. Ask anything. Alpha is a place where no question is off limits.
WHO IS ALPHA FOR?
Alpha is for everyone, especially...those who have given up on church, those wanting to investigate Christianity, those who are new to the Christian faith, those wanting to grow in understanding and faith...
HOW DOES ALPHA WORK?
Over 11 Sunday evenings from 6:00-8:15 pm (plus a day-long getaway in the middle), each Alpha course session begins with food, followed by a short video looking at a different aspect of the Christian faith. After that, there is a time for discussion in a friendly small group.
WHEN AND WHERE IS ALPHA HELD?
Currently Sunday evenings (6:00-8:15 pm) at Bethany Lutheran Church (550 Cherry Street, Negaunee)...AND IT'S FREE! CHILDCARE AVAILABLE ON REQUEST. Call or text Pastor Steve at 906-458-2145. Call or text Hayley Smith at 906-367-4295.
