Alpha is a series of interactive sessions, exploring the basics of the Christian faith. Alpha in the Chapel at SDBC will begin Sunday, January 14th, will take place from 4-6PM, for nine weeks, and it is free to attend. Each session will look at a different question and is designed to create conversation.
Everyone coming to Alpha in the Chapel will find no pressure and no follow-up. It will be an open, honest place to discuss and explore life's big questions.
There are only three elements to Alpha:
1. Food: at 4PM a meal will be served, provided by SDBC community groups, where you can get to know others in a casual, easy environment. Great friendships often revolve around food.
2. Talk: there will be a video presentation from Alpha dealing with one of life's challenging questions; such as, “Who is Jesus,” “Why and How do I Pray?” and “How Does God Guide Us?”
3. Discussion: this is the most important part of Alpha and provides a chance to share thoughts and ideas about the video, without being corrected or judged. It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspectives.
Perhaps you have a friend or co-worker you could invite. Alpha provides you with a solid opportunity to move your relationship to a higher level. Attend Alpha with them. For nine weeks we will be hosting this opportunity for you to act missionally with a friend. You, and your friend, can sign up to attend this course at www.southdelta.org/alpha.
If you have signed up to be a table leader for Alpha, please plan on attending our Table Leaders Training Seminar on Sunday, January 7th at 4PM. This seminar will have some training videos and coaching from former Alpha directors.
Alpha is a great way to begin a new year. I hope you will consider who God would ask you to invite. Is Alpha a future God-story in your life?
