What happens on the Wednesdays when Alpha Gather is off?
We’re glad you asked! If you’d like, you’ll have the opportunity to join a Community Group that meets on the off weeks. Whereas Alpha Gather is an opportunity to connect with a room full of people, the community group will give you a chance to go deeper with a tight-knit group.
When does Alpha Gather meet?
Alpha Gather meets twice monthly on Wednesday nights from 6:30-8pm.
