First Presbyterian Church to begin Alpha course Feb. 6
WALLA WALLA — The First Presbyterian Church, 325 S. First Ave., will begin the Alpha course, starting at 6 p.m. Feb. 6.
The Alpha course covers the basics of Christianity. It addresses questions such as: Who is Jesus? Why did he die? Why and how do I pray? Why and how should I read the Bible? Is there more to life than this? How can I make the most of the rest of my life?
The course will be 11 weeks, except spring break and Holy Week, with a day-long getaway in the middle. Each week, participants will gather for about two hours; sharing an informal meal, watching a DVD on how Christianity approaches the question at hand, then breaking for discussion. There is no charge and child care is available.
For more information, call 509-525-1093.
