What is Alpha?

An opportunity to explore the meaning of life! Alpha is about building friendships with people…about great meals…interesting discussion…answering perplexing questions.

Alpha is a casual, fun, and fascinating course in the basics of Christianity. The evening course takes place over 9 weeks and involves   “live” talk and small group discussion on the topic of the talk.  Topics range from Who is Jesus?  How and Why Should I Read the Bible?  How Can I Be Filled With the Holy Spirit, and what does that mean?  

Why take the Alpha Course?

Both theology and the philosophy behind Alpha serve as the DNA of St. Michael’s Church.

The message Alpha offers is 100% scripturally-based, and wavers not an inch from God’s truth. However, the course also makes clear that, we welcome you where you are.  Come explore, build relationships and share your point of view.

What steps do I take?

Alpha is “the gateway into St. Michael’s!” This is because the theology in the presentation is 100% in keeping with the Word being preached by our Priests.  As a result, it’s a great way for newcomers to discover where we stand on a wide variety of theological issues.  We use Alpha as our unifying baseline across our faith community. Alpha is offered both, in spring and fall! The clergy, staff, and our parish are uniformly committed to this ministry, and finding out more is as easy as asking the person next to you!

Alpha is for anyone…it’s simply, “a conversation with friends”!
