What is Alpha?

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith. Typically run over eleven weeks, each session begins with a meal and time to just hangout, followed by a video that looks at a different question around faith. The videos are designed to create conversation in small groups afterwards.  It’s just an open, informal and honest space to explore and discuss life’s big questions together. Our next Alpha session will begin January 23, 2022 at 6:00 PM.  You can register to attend here.


What Alpha guests at First United Methodist Church-West Plains  are saying:

"I tried Alpha because I felt myself straying away from Christ."

"Having the basic message of what Christianity is really helped to reground me. When I felt like I was being blown in different directions, it helped recenter me."

"There was always good input. Everybody had a different story to tell and it made me feel comfortable to talk about things."

"You'll have at least one reason to come back.  Eventually, those reasons start multiplying."

"It's definitely worth your time."
