ALPHA at Arlington Woods
Starting on Wednesday, September 20th, Arlington Woods is hosting ALPHA on Wednesdays from 6:30-8:30pm. Alpha is an opportunity to explore life, faith and God in a friendly, open and informal environment. Visit the ALPHA website for specific information and videos about the series.
Each session begins with supper provided for you. If you have children, they can also accompany you for supper and then head to their own room for childcare during the session. After supper, we'll gather around tables to watch one of the Alpha Film Series episodes. Each episode is approximately 20-26 minutes in length and is a high quality, modern video segment (Watch the ALPHA trailer here!). Each episode ends with an opportunity to discuss the topic and share your own thoughts. The object of ALPHA is to have friendly discussion where you can share without being judged. There are no wrong answers- you can simply share your own thoughts and opinions on the topic.
The first few episodes in particular are definitely "don't miss" dates, so take a look at the schedule below for a list of weekly topics. Not everyone will be able to attend every week of the course (although it's encouraged), so feel free to invite a friend to join you for the topic that would be of the greatest interest to them.
