What is Alpha? - Sandy Doty

Phone: 941-875-4199

Alpha is an exciting discussion format that explores the fundamental basis of Christianity. If you have been reluctant to ask the big questions in life, this is the place to fire away. No pressure. No follow up. No charge.

Alpha has ten sessions, includes food and a 45 minute video presentation by Nicky Gumbel. We then break into small groups for discussion. In the small group you can express your thoughts and/or listen to the viewpoints of others.

There are no right or wrong answers. Information is exchanged and you form your own opinions. There is no pressure to join our church or even to become a Christian. You make your own decisions.

We completed our first Alpha Discussion Series in December 2014. The first series was limited to our congregation so that we could learn how best to conduct future programs. We are now opening our doors and inviting the whole community.

On January 11, 2015 a video preview of Alpha will be shown at 12:30 p.m. The purpose is to allow a taste of Alpha before committing to the full course.

Starting Thursday January 15, 2015 ten weekly sessions will be offered from 3:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. and also from 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. A small meal will offered at 5:30pm so that either session may participate. There is no charge for the discussion series but a donation of $5.00 is requested to cover meal expense.

Child care will be offered during both sessions at no charge.
