Summer Alpha Course
The Alpha Course is an introduction or refresher to the basics of Christianity. It’s centered around a weekly meal, a message and small group discussion. We welcome honest dialogue regarding questions about doubt and faith as it relates to our everyday lives.
It’s for you if you fit in any of these categories:
#1. people who are not Christians but want to explore Christianity,
#2. people who have recently become Christians
#3. people who are coming back to faith and want to strengthen their foundation
#4. people who are Christians that want a refresher on the basics of Christianity
WHO WILL YOU INVITE? Our first class starts on Wednesday, July 11th at 7:30PM at the church office (224 W. 35th St., #610) and every Wednesday after for 9 weeks. All are welcome! If you’re interested in more info then please email Lindsay <email@example.com>.

Upcoming Missions Trips
MONTHLY WORSHIP NIGHT
Worship nights are held on the first Friday of every month at 7:30 pm. Our upcoming one is Friday, July 6 at 7:30PM. It's to come together and bend our knees, stand in awe, and invite the presence of God. No agenda. For any and all to attend. No elaborate worship set. Just our hearts, united as one body. We're going to seek God's glory and experience Him. Come, for an hour or two, let's prioritize our intimacy with the One who is worthy. Questions? Email Dan <firstname.lastname@example.org>
