The ALPHA USA course returns to Community Church of the Open Door in Hampden beginning Monday, April 16th, 6-8:30PM, with an open invitation to anyone wanting to explore the basic principles of Christian faith in a safe, relaxed, non-threatening atmosphere. Eight weekly sessions each include a FREE dinner, DVD session, small group discussion, and childcare. There is no pressure to share personally and every question is valued, as you explore key topics including: Who is Jesus? Why did He die? How and why do people pray? Why do people read the Bible?

Whether you’re a curious guest, a life-long church-goer of any denomination, or a complete skeptic, ALPHA is an ideal place for you to explore the validity and relevance of the Christian faith in today’s world and your life.
