I sometimes feel like an exaggerated salesman when I talk about Alpha. It seems too good to be true, but it is good and it is true. Where else can you sit down with your family to eat a home-cooked meal for free? No clean-up, no hidden agenda and yet a lot of fun?
Alpha is my favorite program in our church. It combines food, family, and jokes with intellectual pursuit, addressing the ten most important elements of Christianity. While the children (pre-K through 6th grade) head off to Awana, the parents stay in Common Grounds for 85 minutes of rowdy laughter, making some new friendships, and talking about key truths of faith. At 8:25pm Alpha ends.
