Alpha Course

David Harder

Faith Classroom

Returning Fall 2024

What is Alpha? Alpha is a series of conversations about things we all question in life: Why do bad things happen to good people? What’s the purpose of life? What’s next? If you’re looking for a judgment-free space to ask hard questions and share your own opinion, there’s a place for you.


This an outreach class. Bring your friends who may not yet know Christ and are interested in learning about the faith. Click here to learn more.

One of Michele's favorite Bible verses is 2 Peter 1:3, "Everything we could ever need for life and complete devotion to God has already been deposited in us by his divine power. For all this was lavished upon us through the rich experience of knowing him who has called us by name and invited us to come to him through a glorious manifestation of his goodness."
