Everyone who is searching for meaning in life is invited to join the Alpha course to explore life and faith.

Over 169 million people worldwide have experienced Alpha. There's something in Alpha for everyone: The faithful, the questioning, those on the fringe of faith and even the person who is outside the faith but wants to learn more.

The Alpha course is interdenominational, relaxed, friendly and fun. Sharing a meal at the beginning of each session provides an opportunity for participants to get to know each other. Then the group watches a DVD presentation on topics such as "Is there more to life than this?" or "Who is Jesus?"

After, each presentation, participants divide into small groups for discussion. The philosophy of Alpha is listen, learn, discuss, discover and ask anything. No question is too simple or too hostile. It is a safe place where questions are valued and opinions are respected.

The course consists of 10 weekly sessions in the parish hall. There is no charge for the Alpha course and babysitting is available by appointment.

The fall 2015 Alpha course will be hosted by Immaculate Conception Catholic Church located on State Route 89A and Bill Gray Road, beginning Tuesday, Sept. 8, at 6 p.m. with a free catered dinner and the introductory session.
