Alpha

 Another Alpha Session Begins 

What is Alpha?

Alpha is a series of interactive sessions exploring the Christian faith. It is run throughout the world by Christians of all Traditions, providing a common expression of “proclamation, service and witness”.

Evangelization

Alpha is a tool to introduce people to an initial proclamation of the Good News of Jesus Christ.  As Pope Francis says, “Nothing is more solid, profound, secure, meaningful and wisdom-filled than that initial proclamation”  (Evangelii Gaudium 165)

Encounter

Alpha takes people on a journey often leading to a personal encounter with Jesus Christ. It enables people to ask their questions, share ideas, build friendships and experience the love of God through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Everyone

Alpha is for everyone; all backgrounds, all contexts, all ages. Alpha is especially attracting young people who are asking the question, “Is there more to life than this?”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Alpha Team and Guests

Witness

At first I was not sure about Alpha. When I was invited to be a team member, I thought I would give it a try. These last few weeks I realized that my heart has been opened to the Holy Spirit more than ever before. I’ve come to realize how important the Spirit actually is and now I’ve been inviting Him into my daily life. I believe Alpha hsd played a  huge role in this change. I love the support and trust that has been developed in our small group. Jesus said “Love one another” and that’s the feeling developed in Alpha. The discussions we had about the Holy Spirit truly had an impact on me. I feel that I am on my way to fully becoming a Joyful Disciple” of Jesus more than ever before.   Anthony Gnutek

Alpha began as 8 loosely connected people at a table and ended up as 8 friends who were sharing their lives together and now we are on the same mission to make disciples!  Joan Domke

We really enjoyed the Alpha retreat this past Sunday. It was a great sharing experience. Anna  & Joe Garcia

The Alpha experience was awesome. It’s an informal way to participate in church. You have a way to listen, share and grow in a small group that becomes a Christian community!  Come join us this fall. You won’t be sorry! Alpha will meet you spiritually, wherever you are! Greg and Christine Everhart 

Alpha reinforces our beliefs. It is like taking vitamins for your faith.  After reviewing the videos we find ourselves open to discussions with the group. It is most interesting to hear what others think, and sharing a meal is always a good thing! Peace. God be with all of us.  Dolores Lawicki
