On Sunday, Pastor Jeff challenged Northgaters to invite someone to the Alpha Course this fall. He also interviewed Brian Wefel about his life-changing experience on Alpha. I don’t know about you, but after hearing Brian’s story, I was so encouraged in my relationship with Christ. I definitely have a couple of people I want to invite to Alpha. Alpha is perfect for those who consider themselves Christ-seekers and are looking for a place where they can openly discuss the basic tenets of the Christian faith. Alpha is also a great course for Christ-followers who want to experience a deeper walk with God.

People at Northgate love the Alpha Course because God has used it to deepen their faith, connect people together in meaningful community, and experience the powerful “knock-your-socks-off” work of the Holy Spirit.

The 10 week course will help you and your friends grapple with questions such as:

  • Who is Jesus?
  • Why did Jesus die?
  • How can I be sure of my faith?
  • How can I be filled with the Holy Spirit?
  • How can I resist evil?
  • Does God heal today?

Each gathering revolves around dessert (nothing wrong with that!), worship, a presentation, and discussion opportunities. Mark your calendars and plan to invite a friend to Northgate’s second Alpha session, beginning Sunday, September 18 at 5:30 pm. . . or attend yourself.

How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” (Romans 10:14-15).
