ALPHA is a 10-week course designed for people who are interested in investigating Christianity and want answers to basic questions. There is no prerequisite other than a curiosity about God, Christianity, or things Christians believe. If you are a new to the church, a new believer, someone who doesn’t know what to believe, or just want to brush up on the basics, this is a great course to be in. We start off with a meal together, followed by a 30-minute video and group discussion. We discuss topics like who is Jesus, why did Jesus die, why and how do I pray, does God heal today, and many others.

We believe that when God’s people come together, they should be expressing joy to the God of their salvation. As such, our worship takes on the tenure of the Old and New Testaments, where the people of God expressed themselves with musical instruments, singing, dancing, clapping, lifting of hands, and other outward expressions of love and appreciation for God’s goodness in our lives. Everyone who comes to our meetings is encouraged to participate and freely express the joy they have received in being a part of the body of Christ.

Connect Groups: We believe that community is essential to personal growth as a follower of Christ. Care is not solely the responsibility pastors and elders; we are to care for one another. Connect groups are the primary way we do that by providing a safe place to build authentic relationships, use our gifts, and respond to needs (inside & outside the church).
