If you could ask God one question, what would you ask?
Thursdays @ 7:00-8:30 PM
September 5 - October 24 (8 weeks)
What is Alpha?
Alpha is an opportunity to explore the meaning of life in a relaxed, friendly setting. At each of the 8 sessions, you will enjoy great food, laughter, and learning in a fun and friendly atmosphere where no question about life or God is too simple or too hostile. Is there a God? Why am I here? Where did I come from? Where am I going? If you're asking questions like these, the Alpha Course is for you.
Who is Alpha for?
Alpha is for anyone. Anyone who thinks there may be more to life than meets the eye. 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 for Jesus, and more. Many guests have never been to church, and other may have attended church occasionally but feel they have never really understood the basics of the Christian faith. Everyone is welcome!
What happens at Alpha?
Each evening begins with a meal or refreshments - a chance to get to know others. Then there is 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 opinions and ask questions. The emphasis is on exploration and discovery in a relaxed and informal environment. The talks each week cover the following topics, acting as a springboard for the discussions:
- Is there more to life than this?
- Who is Jesus? Why did he die?
- How can we have faith?
- Why and how do I pray?
- Why and how should I read the Bible?
- How does God guide us?
- What about the church?
- How can I make the most of the rest of my life?
FREE COURSE includes dinner provided by FCC's Food Court. Pick up dinner at 6:45 PM and bring it into class with you!
