Don't believe in God? Given up on church? Just curious?

Alpha is an opportunity to ask the tough questions about life and God in a friendly, open, and informal setting. Alpha has ten sessions that freely explore the basics of the Christian faith.

Each week is centered around dinner, a short talk, and a discussion at the end where you can share your thoughts and ask questions. No question is too basic or too big.

Try ALPHA without committing to the course by signing up for the next Launch Party, and if it looks interesting to you, keep coming.

The next Alpha courses launch:

  • Tuesday, September 17, 6:45-9 PM at Park - Near North (1001 N Crosby St.)

  • Wednesday, September 18, 7-9 PM at Park - South Loop (Ozinga Conference Space - 2255 S Lumber St.)



+  Who is ALPHA for?
Alpha is for anyone. People attend from all backgrounds, religions, and viewpoints. Participants come to investigate questions about the existence of God, the purpose of life, and the claims of Jesus. Some people are curious to understand what the Christian faith believes. Others come to learn more about the God who really changes lives. 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 simply aren't able to articulate why they believe what they believe. Everyone is welcome.

+  How much does ALPHA cost?
There is no charge for attending the Alpha course. A weekly donation of $5 for dinner is requested to help cover the cost for the meal.
