Midweek PUSH Meal & Classes
Meal @ 5:30pm (please sign up for the meal by Monday afternoon)
Classes for all ages @ 6pm
When our PUSH meals begin on January 26, we will begin to experience a powerful spiritual movement out of the Church of England called Alpha. Alpha is a series of sessions built around food, a video, and then discussion. Each session looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone is welcome. January Lectionary Readings
First up there‘s Food Alpha is designed to start with a meal because it‘s a great way to build community. Everyone understands the welcoming spirit that a meal creates and we will be eating with our church family.
Then the Video The videos are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Usually around thirty minutes long, they explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christi anity, addressing questions from Who is Jesus? And How can we have faith? To Why and how do I pray? And How does God guide us?
Followed by Discussion Probably the most important part of any Alpha is the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss it in a small group. There‘s no obligation to say anything and there‘s nothing you can‘t say (seriously). It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environ ment.
Alpha is a space for people inside and outside the church to explore faith within the context of the local church, and I am excited about Alpha as a place we can grow in Christ.
