Engage Programs

We believe faith takes root and blossoms with opportunities to share with others. The following programs help people engage in a deeper relationship with Jesus in a small group format.

Alpha Program

Alpha is a 10-week series that explores the essential components of the Christian faith. Alpha provides an opportunity for people of all ages and levels of faith to experience Christian community, engage in discussions in a safe and friendly environment, and encounter the love of God in a personal relationship through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.
