Alpha

This is an opportunity to explore the meaning of life in a relaxed setting. The 10 week course introduces Jesus and his way of life, answering questions like these: Who is Jesus? How does God guide us? Why does God allow suffering? No question is too simple or hostile. Non-denominational. Atheists and agnostics are welcomed.

Childcare is available for this class with notice.

For any questions, please call or email the church office (480-892-9166).
