  • Alpha – we STILL need a few more volunteers from our congregation to help facilitate the sessions. For those of you who don’t know - Alpha is an opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment.  It's a ten-week course that will be held in our Fellowship Hall. Essentially, Alpha is a safe place to explore life's biggest questions. For church leaders, 96% say Alpha is an effective tool for discipleship. After taking Alpha, 88% of guests were more committed to growing their knowledge of the Bible. Please let Pastor Phil know if you have questions or would be interested in being a facilitator.
  • OSLC Alpha class has begun - Alpha runs for 10 weeks on Sunday afternoon from 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm. You can start at any time and you do not have to attend every session.
