Current Series

In lieu of our regular Sunday morning service, we will be offering
The Alpha Course on Sunday mornings beginning on January 14th
and continuing through March 25th, and we're including breakfast
each week!
What is Alpha? Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian
faith for anyone with deep questions or even just a mild curiosity!
Typically run over eleven weeks, each session looks at a different
question that people can have about faith and is designed to create
conversation. It's just an open, informal and honest space to
explore and discuss life's big questions together
without fear or embarrassment.
And it's FUN!
We invite you to join us!  For more information,

the alpha retreat
re·treat (ri·trēt´) [from Latin: re-, back + trahere, to draw]: 1) a withdrawal in the face of opposition, etc.;  2) a safe, quiet, or secluded place; 3) a period of rest, especially for thoughtful reflection
 When it comes to the Christian faith, some of us can understand the basic concept of God the Father.  Some of us can also understand what Jesus Christ has done for us to bring us back into a right relationship with God.  However, when it comes to the Holy Spirit, he seems to be a mystery.  Is the Holy Spirit like Casper the friendly ghost?  or is he more like the force in Star Wars?  or is he altogether different?  Jesus said the Holy Spirit would transform our lives forever.  So it’s crucial to understand who he is and experience how he wants to work in our lives! 


On Friday and Saturday, March 2nd & 3rd, we will be embarking on our Alpha retreat.  It will be a fun time to get to know one another better!  We’ll enjoy eating together, playing some games, listening to Alpha sessions #8-10, and having time to discuss those topics about the Holy Spirit more in depth.

When: We’ll meet Friday, March 2nd (7-8:45pm) and Saturday, March 3rd (9:15am-4:15pm).  For all the details, check out the Hope calendar ( go2hope.org/calendar ), talk to your table group leader, or talk to Gary Grant.
