We are excited to be running Alpha again at Holy Family! We had great success with our two rounds of Alpha last year with about 50 participants attending and over 70 parishioners volunteering for various roles. We are so grateful for the support of all of the volunteers who generously gave of their time and talents. Alpha is a program that helps draw people into an encounter with Christ. Alpha begins with a meal, we then watch a video the explores a major question about Christianity, and lastly, we break into smaller discussion groups. Alpha is tailored towards those who do not know the Christian faith well but is open to anyone who has questions about Christianity or who would like to grow in their relationship with Christ. Our first Alpha will start on Wednesday, April 22nd at 7:00 pm.
We all have questions that we'd like answered, especially ones as we grow in faith. Youth Alpha is a wonderful opportunity to start from the ground up and explore some fundamental aspects of Christianity. It is a 9-week course where you can feel comfortable about talking about Jesus and discuss questions like Who is Christ? Why did He die for us? Why and how should I read the Bible? It is a fun, interesting and clear way to learn more and answer some crucial questions. During our SUMMIT youth group each Sunday night at 6 pm we will dip into these topics by watching a video presentation, followed by small group discussion. It is a warm and welcoming environment to learn some key aspect of your faith with similar-minded youths...the pizza dinner is just a bonus!
So if you are in years 10-12, come along and explore these questions with us!
