ALPHA program needs your prayers and volunteers. The Evangelism Committee desires that this outreach unifies our church through prayer as we make preparations in leadership, helpers, training, and advertising. Ask God to reveal your role to you.
The ALPHA program provides online training that can be done at home. Joanna has sent out the link to access these videos. Check it out! Please watch all of them.

There will be a ALPHA discussion meeting June 8 following Sabbath School to review material from the online training video series.
