You or Someone in Your Life Wants to Come to Alpha

You or Someone in Your Life Wants to Come to Alpha

Sometimes conversations about God/Jesus can be hard, awkward, non-existent or uncomfortable at best. Often we want to talk with others about God, but just don’t know how to get the ball rolling. Death, illness, baptism are easier topics to start with, but thankfully...
The Oldest Trick in the Book

The Oldest Trick in the Book

Have you ever played a musical instrument? Have you ever played one daily and then for some unknown reason, you just stopped? Days turned to weeks turned to months turned to years turned to decades. I know when Covid first hit, I decided at age 61 to pick...

Etch-A-Sketch. An article for those who have really “blown it.”

Etch-A-Sketch. An article for those who have really “blown it.”

O Come, Let Us Adore Him

O Come, Let Us Adore Him

Christmas Eve services are our best attended worship services of the year. Most unchurched and non-Christians no longer come on Easter Sunday like they did back in the day, but many still come on Christmas. They come willingly. They come because Christmas is still a...
