Alpha

Alpha is an opportunity to explore life, faith and God in a friendly, open and informal environment.  Alpha starts with a free meal, then a video on some element of life and faith, followed by group discussion where no view, comment, or question is off limits.

So whether you are interested in Alpha, or would like to learn more, check out our no obligation, no follow-up, Alpha Launch Party on Monday, September 18th, at 6:30pm.  If you know you're going to make it, a quick heads up email is appreciated to contact@villagechurchchicago.org (with any dietary restrictions) so that we can make sure there is plenty of food for everyone!
