What is Alpha?
What on earth is going on? What is life all about? Why are we here? What is my purpose in this crazy world? These are some of the questions many of us are asking. Alpha is a place where we can ask and wrestle with life's questions through the lens of the Christian faith.
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. Each session explores a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all over the world and everyone is welcome.
Typically, Alpha has around 10 sessions and includes food (we are supplying the meal for the entire Alpha Course), a short video talk, and discussion at the end where you can share your thoughts.
The Alpha Course will begin Sunday afternoon, February 20th at 5 pm in the Fireside Room at Deering Center Community Church, 4 Brentwood St. in Portland, Maine.
Alpha is co-ed and is available for everyone; you do not have to be a member of Deering Center Community Church.
