Alpha gives teens the opportunity to explore the meaning of life in a relaxed, friendly setting. The Alpha course usually meets once a week for 9 weeks, sometimes in a church, a home, or a restaurant. Sessions begin with a meal, followed by a short video/talk, and time to discuss the topic.
During the discussion, everyone is welcome to contribute their opinions and no question is considered hostile or too simple. Questions might include–Is there a God? Why am I here? Where did I come from? Where am I going?
Alpha is for everyone –no question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish. We don’t assume any background knowledge or belief in Christianity and everyone is welcome.
All high school teens NEW to L.I.G.H.T. are asked to attend Alpha before they seek the Sacrament of Confirmation (Check the Sacrament of Confirmation page HERE).
Please Note: Our next Youth Alpha has already started! Registration will close on October 3rd for this session on Youth Alpha.
