A Taste of Alpha

posted on September 29

By now you may have heard about the remarkable impact  Alpha courses have been making in the lives of believers and unbelievers alike but you’re probably wondering what exactly Alpha is all about.  We’re glad you asked! But first, here are a couple questions that we would like you to answer for yourself.

  1. Are there people in your community who are confused by the Christian faith or maybe questioning it all together and is it possible that some of them are in your church?
  2. Do you wish your church offered an inviting place to ask questions and  that your church would be welcoming  to everyone who is interested in discovering what Christianity is all about?

If you answered yes, then we urge you to join others in the Southeast District for “A Taste of Alpha”! This introductory session will demonstrate how the Alpha course has been designed to help your church create a judement-free space for people to feel safe to bring their most troubling questions  about the Christian faith, while feeling genuinely safe and welcome. Attending “A Taste of Alpha” does not require any commitment from you. We are simply inviting you and your team to check out what the Alpha course is all about and to see if it’s right for your church.  Pastors are strongly encouraged to invite one or two members of their church to join them for the evening.  Come enjoy a great meal  with other clergy and laity teams from across the Southeast district and see what running an Alpha course can do for your church to further the mission of Christ in your community!

Who:  All churches in the Southeast District interested in learning more about the Alpha Course

When:  Sunday, November 7th from 5:00-7:30 pm

Where:  First UMC (Sikeston)  1307 N Main St, Sikeston, MO  63801
