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:

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.

Women's Ministry: Joy in the Evening Bible Study

The Real God, Chip Ingram
Do you know a god – or do you know the real God? Our distorted view of God is the root of many of our problems. Does your god only faintly resemble the God of Scripture? Mental idols comfort our emotions, but they are powerless to transform our lives. The way back, the path of hope, starts with knowing God for who He really is. The Real God is a study of seven attributes of God – His goodness, sovereignty, holiness, wisdom, justice, love, and faithfulness – you’ll see Him in a whole new light. It will change the way you think about God, yourself, and others –it’s how God longs for you to see Him.

Cost is $20.

For parents with children at Camp Little Bear. 

Raising children is a challenge in today's world. Peers and pop culture exert never-ending pressure on kids. Every day they are bombarded with the pressures and influences of drugs, sex, and violence.

We will go through a DVD teaching and group discussion on Chip Ingrim's, Effective Parenting in a Defective World. In this series, you will learn universally applicable principles, apply practical lessons about discipline and understand and impliment simple biblical truths.

If you have any questions, please contact the Parenting Seminar leader, Leslie Miller.
