HOW DO WE COMMUNICATE UNCHANGING TRUTH? God has an answer to reverse this trend – it’s the proclamation of the Gospel through the local Church. Alpha’s mission is to serve and strengthen the church to see this happen.

ALPHA IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO EXPLORE THE MEANING OF LIFE In a relaxed, friendly setting, the Alpha course usually meets once per week for 10 weeks, and includes an amazing one-day or weekend getaway. Each session, people enjoy great food, laughter and learn about the basics of the

Christian faith in a fun and friendly atmosphere where no question about life or God is seen as too simple or too hostile… questions like—Is there a God? Why am I here? Where did I come from? Where am I going?

“I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life.” John 5:24 www.alphausa.org/growth
