Dear Disciple,

You may have been heard about ALPHA recently and wondered what it’s all about! 

ALPHA is a series of structured sessions which explore the basics of faith in an open, informal environment with no judgement and no pressure. This is a great opportunity for those who are “seeking” or wrestling in the faith and what it means to be a Christian. It consists of a 10-week program where guests share a meal, watch a video and then discuss what they have seen.

Shepherd of the Woods is is offering an Alpha course beginning Tuesday, January 9 at 6:00pm. It is most fruitful when people are personally invited to attend. Some participants do enroll as a result of print or internet ads or by doing Google searches on topics like “Is there a God?”, “What is the meaning of life?”, or “What is Christianity?” But the vast majority of those who enroll will attend because someone invited them. 

Be praying about who YOU know that would be blessed in reflecting on life and faith big questions. Or, maybe it is even you! Alpha includes many who are church members and those who identify themselves as Christians but who are still seeking more in their faith life. All are welcome. If you would like to register to participate yourself, please reply to this message or click the link below.. 

If you would like to invite someone that might be seeking to find faith, please share the invitation by clicking on the download below and forwarding it by text, email or by having a conversation in person! 

If you have any questions at all, please text or call Jackie Hudson at 904.728.0890 or reply to this email.
