StoneBridge’s Summer Alpha Course starts May 22, 2014 and runs Thursdays from 6-8:30 PM. Free dinner and childcare provided. What is Alpha? It’s a course on the fundamentals of Christian faith shared by all Biblical churches where people can feel comfortable and safe to ask questions about anything. To date, over 24 million people worldwide have taken an Alpha Course. The Course began in the United Kingdom and was perfected by a British barrister turned pastor. We’re going to have two discussion groups—one for people who already believe in Jesus and one for people who don’t. We welcome with open arms atheists, agnostics, Muslims, doubting Christians, anyone not ready to go to church yet with an open mind. If you know someone who doesn’t believe but has an open mind, please invite them to come. If you’d like to learn more about the fundamentals of Christianity and how to explain your faith better to nonbelievers, this Course is for you as well. Can’t make every session? Come to the ones you can.
