Frequently asked questions about Alpha Tuesday nights:

What happens during the Alpha course?

Each Alpha course meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. with a meal. Many individuals attend the course right after work, so bring your appetite; don't worry about dinner and enjoy our hospitality. After dinner there is a video presentation on a topic about the Christian faith. Individuals are then given an opportunity to discuss informally in small groups what they thought about the presentation. Some people ask questions, some don't; the choice is yours. No one will call on you to answer questions, but if you do have questions about the topic, here is the time and place to ask them. The course will conclude each evening at 8:30 p.m. sharp.

Is there child care?

Yes! Each Alpha course has child care for children from newborns to the 6th grade. Children from kindergarten through the 6th grade will participate in a separate Awana Club program at the church at the same time. Separate child care for preschoolers will also be provided.

Where is the Alpha course held?
The Alpha course is held two times a year at Church of the SaviourThe Alpha course is also taught by thousands of churches across the country and around the world. Visit Alpha to find a listing of other courses.

What does the Alpha course cost?
The course is free... the only thing it requires is an investment of your time! Meals are available at no charge. Should you desire the opportunity to contribute a small donation to offset the meal costs, a basket is available for you to do so.

Do I have to commit to all 10 weeks?
No! But we do recommend that you attend at least three weeks to get a taste of the Alpha course.

Women's Ministry: Joy in the Morning Bible Study

  • Church of the Saviour (Bldg. A) (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

JOY in the Morning invites you to join in our warm, inter-generational community that will help you understand the context and meaning of the Bible so you can apply it to your life with fellowship, support, and prayer. Free childcare provided with registration. This semester we will offer two different study options:

Topical: Priscilla Shirer - Discerning the Voice of God

Pricilla Shirer’s Discerning the Voice of God is a 7 video Bible study which will help us discover the root to clear and daily communication with God - humble obedience. Learn how surrender unlocks His many blessings intended for us, centers us in His will, and helps us discern His voice in everyday life. Our JoyAM class will view a video every other week, and reflect and share what we are learning from the study guide on the off weeks.  

Cost is $20

Bible Study: Mark (Lifechange)

Regardless of where you are in your faith journey, this year long in-depth study of Mark will introduce you to Jesus through a life changing encounter with God's Word. 


When Jesus came claiming to be the promised Messiah, the Jewish people were expecting a powerful warrior-king who would throw off their oppressors. Instead, He served the needs of the weak and suffered injury from the strong. Because He did not fit their ideal picture of a messiah, the people rejected Him. Mark’s Gospel, probably the earliest account of Jesus’ life, shows us how Jesus upsets our expectations in order to give us something better than we could imagine. The flexible guide allows you to individually adjust the quantity and depth of your study.

New Winter 2019 registrations are welcome!  We will be starting class with a review of Mark 1-8 to catch everyone up, so you can jump right in.


Cost is $20. Free child care available with registration.

COSMOS 2019

COSMOS (Church of the Saviour Missions Outreach Strategy) is our annual missions conference. We use it as a time to celebrate what God is doing through our Global Partners and to seek how God is calling each one of us.

God has given us a great mission, to “make disciples of all nations.” (Matthew 28:19) If you are a follower of Christ, then you are called to this mission. You are called to be a disciple, to make disciples and to have a heart for the nations. We know this because “God so loved the world that He gave His only Son.” He desires that we love His world and work together to reach the nations.

Not every disciple is called to be a missionary, but we are all called to be part of that mission. You have a unique role to play. You are called.

Precepts Upon Precepts study of Galatians

Paul is principally concerned with the controversy surrounding Gentile Christians and the Mosaic Law during the Apostolic Age.

In advance of the Jerusalem Council, Paul’s letter speaks wisdom and clarity into the first real controversy that plagued the church in its early years—the relationship between Christian Jews and Christian Gentiles.

The Galatians study is 16 weeks running from January 13-April 28 (No class March 24th or April 21st.) We will be going through eight lessons and we divide each lesson in half to be completed over two weeks to equal 16 weeks for the course (a much slower pace for busy styles without compromising in depth study.)

Global Outreach: Lesvos Short-Term Trip Application Deadline

Thousands of refugees are coming to Greece as their first stop on the way to what they hope will be a better life in Northern Europe. They arrive with almost nothing, having survived the dangerous crossing from Turkey, and have to face many difficulties as they arrive in Europe.

Would you consider being someone who shows powerfully love to these refugees seeking hope and freedom? These are people coming to us from places we could not easily go, or could never go, with the Gospel. Many of them speak English and many are open to hearing about the love of Christ. No special skills are needed, just a loving heart, a willingness to serve, and a passion for the lost thousands who are making this trek across Europe. If you feel the Spirit's call to help in this situation, inquire today about bringing a team to Greece.

Trip dates are June 21st- July 6th.

We “Serve the World” most effectively, and experience the most joy, when we use the gifts God gave us to serve Him! The S.H.A.P.E. framework, as laid out in the book by the same name by Erik Rees, gives us a way to better explore and understand those gifts:

  • Spiritual Gifts

  • Heart

  • Abilities

  • Personality

  • Experience

This eight-Sunday series is designed to explore God’s unique gifting of, and purpose for, you. Interactive class time will give participants a chance to identify their unique gifting through a series of self-assessments, group discussion and times of prayerful introspection.

This class is open to all, & highly encouraged for those new(ish) to Church of the Saviour. Books will be provided free of charge.

Feel free to contact the class facilitator, Linda Kilburn-Peterson at lindakp@gmail.com, with expressions of interest and/or questions.

Caregiving Stress & Burnout- Part 2

Taking care of another person can be stressful. Caregiver stress happens when you don't have time to do all that's asked or expected of you. You may feel like no matter what you do, it's not enough, or like everything is on your shoulders. Burnout can affect mood, physical symptoms, and can lead to chemical dependency and abuse.

DoubleHope encourages and supports those affected by cancer, helping to navigate their paths with hope and strength from a faith-based perspective. Attendees are welcome to bring lunch and eat as we meet.

Women's Ministry: Joy in the Morning Bible Study

  • Church of the Saviour (Bldg. A) (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

JOY in the Morning invites you to join in our warm, inter-generational community that will help you understand the context and meaning of the Bible so you can apply it to your life with fellowship, support, and prayer. Free childcare provided with registration. This semester we will offer two different study options:

1) Mark (LifeChange) Paperback – April 1, 1995 by The Navigators

Regardless of where you are in your faith journey, this year long in-depth study of Mark will introduce you to Jesus through a life changing encounter with God's Word. 
When Jesus came claiming to be the promised Messiah, the Jewish people were expecting a powerful warrior-king who would throw off their oppressors. Instead, He served the needs of the weak and suffered injury from the strong. Because He did not fit their ideal picture of a messiah, the people rejected Him. Mark’s Gospel, probably the earliest account of Jesus’ life, shows us how Jesus upsets our expectations in order to give us something better than we could imagine. The flexible guide allows you to individually adjust the quantity and depth of your study.  

2) Numbers: Learning Contentment in a Culture of More

Numbers: Learning Contentment in a Culture of More by Melissa Spoelstra is a 6 week study using a DVD and study guide. This is a study comparing our own dissatisfaction with our life circumstances to the grumbling of the Israelites as God leads them out of slavery. By exploring Numbers, we’ll identify the reasons for our own complaining, learn contentment while being authentic about the difficulties of life, accept short-term hardship in light of the greater good of God's ultimate deliverance, recognize the relationship between complaining and worry, and discover how to realign with God's character and promises.
