Groups/Studies

We offer opportunities for adults of all ages. Some groups/studies meet on a short-term basis (3 - 8 weeks) while others meet on an on-going basis throughout the year. Find one that suits you and come on in!

ALPHA COURSE

What is Alpha?
Alpha gives everyone the opportunity to explore the meaning of life in a relaxed, friendly setting.  Alpha will meet for 8 weeks and sessions begin with a light meal, followed by a video and time to discuss what's been taught.
 
During the discussion, everyone is welcome to contribute his or her own opinions and no question is considered hostile or too simple. Questions might include—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 and people attend from all backgrounds, religions, and viewpoints. They come to investigate questions about the existence of God, the purpose of life, the afterlife, the claims of Jesus and more. Some people want to get beyond religion and find a relationship with God that really changes life.  Others come for the close, long-lasting friendships that are built during Alpha. Many guests have never been to church, others may have attended church occasionally but feel they have never really understood the basics of the Christian faith, or maybe you’ve attended church your whole life but still have some questions. Everyone is welcome. Bring your curiosity and questions.
 
Free Childcare is provided and there is no required outside study or reading.   
 
Alpha is currently not meeting, but if you are interested in being contacted when the next course will be, Email Pastor Jared Kendall at  .
