  • Alpha – Pastor Phil is doing an Alpha Group at Our Savior’s, but he STILL needs a few more volunteers from our congregation to help facilitate the sessions. For those of you who don’t know what Alpha is - 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.
  • TODAY Alpha tryouts – Pastor would like to do an “Alpha Try-Out” on Sunday, September 9th at time 4:00 pm so people can get a feel for what Alpha is and how it works before committing to a 10 week session.
