Our Alpha Course will meet virtually once a week for 9 weeks. Each meeting will involve a short message that highlights different aspects of Christian faith. The message will be followed by a discussion in a small group setting where everyone is welcome to dialogue and ask questions. The talks are designed to encourage, debate, and explore the basics of the faith in a friendly, honest, and informal environment. Frequently asked questions are: Is there a God? Why am I here? What about other religions? What is my purpose?
The next session of Alpha at Soul City will take place in Fall 2021. Click the button below to be the first to know when dates are set!
Who is ALPHA for?
Alpha is for anyone. People join from all backgrounds, religions, and viewpoints. Come to investigate questions about the existence of God, the purpose of life, the afterlife, the claims of Jesus. Some join because they want to move beyond religion and find a relationship with God. Others come for the long-lasting friendships built during an Alpha course. Many people have never been to church, others may have attended church occasionally but feel they’ve never understood the basics of Christian faith or simply long to articulate why they believe what they believe. Others are new to following Jesus, looking to establish a firm foundation for growth. Everyone is welcome.
How much will ALPHA cost?
There is no charge for attending the Alpha course. A donation of $5 for dinner is requested each week to help cover the cost for the meal.
