A One Day Event
Saturday, May 18th from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Englewood UMC (Fellowship Hall area)
EVERYONE is welcome!
We’re partnering with St. Paul UMC & The Harrison Family YMCA
Today, churches of every major denomination in all 50 states and 169 countries host Alpha courses; they’re also offered in prisons, homes, schools, coffeehouses, and businesses. Since its inception, more than 24 million people have taken the course worldwide.
On May 18th, EUMC will host a one-day training to be an Alpha session leader.
In September, EUMC along with our friends from St. Paul UMC, will partner with the local Harrison Family YMCA to offer a ready-made, 10-week non-denominational curriculum in the basics of Christianity. Currently, about 500 United Methodist churches – more than any other denomination – are offering Alpha. Each week, participants – “guests” is the term Alpha leaders prefer – come for a meal, followed by a video presentation and small group discussions.
What makes Alpha unique? Most leaders say the low-key, non-judgmental approach to the Christian faith. Guests are encouraged to ask questions. There’s no pressure to make a faith commitment or join a church.
