You are invited to join Alpha, a 12 week program that provides a fun and relaxed way to explore the meaning of life and find out more about the Christian faith.

Alpha 2018 Kickoff: Finding faith that empowers your life, could be your greatest adventure! Got Questions about life? Try Alpha.

Keynote speaker, Tom Schuessler, Upstream Research Company President, will kick off the Alpha series on Wednesday, February 14th from 12 noon – 1 pm CT in both HC and HL. The Kickoff is open to everyone, even those not planning to attend the whole series. A light lunch will be provided at HC.

Alpha Course: Alpha is for anyone who’s curious and is an opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment. Over 29 million people have tried Alpha in 169 countries, and it has been translated into 112 different languages. The Alpha Course will be held weekly from February 14 – Apr 25, 2018, from 12 noon – 1 pm CT in HC and HL after a kickoff on February 14. Each week, there will be free lunch (only at HC), a 30 min video and informal small group discussion. You can attend one, many, or all sessions. Alpha is a place where you can be yourself, you can say what you think and challenge everything. No question is too complex or too simple. What your point of view is, it’s as important as anyone’s.

All are welcome! No registration required.
