Alpha at Immanuel

Spring 2022

Explore life, faith, and meaning with Alpha.

Alpha is a 10-week course that creates a friendly, open, and informal space where people can come and discuss life’s big questions. Each week is centered around a short talk and a discussion at the end where you can share your thoughts and ask questions. No question is too basic or too big.

Each gathering includes a snack and discussion.

Our first session of Alpha (January 24, 2022) is more of a “look and see,” or, a session to feel out if you’d like to join us for next 9 weeks. If it looks interesting to you, we would love for you to keep coming!

+ When is Alpha?
Alpha sessions will be held on Monday evenings from 7PM-9PM from January 24th – March 28.

+ Who is ALPHA for?
Alpha is for anyone. People can attend from all backgrounds, religions, and viewpoints. Participants come to investigate questions about the existence of God, the purpose of life, and the claims of Jesus. Some people are curious to understand what the Christian faith believes. Others come to learn more about the God who really changes lives. Many guests have never been to church, others may have attended church occasionally but feel they have never really understood the basics of the Christian faith or simply aren’t able to articulate why they believe what they believe. Everyone is welcome.

+ What is discussed?
Over the 10 weeks of the Alpha, participants explore topics such as:

  • Who is Jesus?
  • Why did Jesus die?
  • How can we have faith?
  • Why and how do I pray?
  • How should I read the Bible?
  • How does God guide us?
  • Who is the Holy Spirit?
  • How can I resist evil?
  • Does God heal today?
  • What’s the purpose of church?

+ How much does ALPHA cost?
There is no charge for attending the Alpha course. Free snacks will be provided. (If you would like to order a drink from the bar, you are welcome to do so, but participants will cover their own tabs.)

+ Where is Alpha?
Alpha will held in the private event space at the Burning Bush Brewery (4014 N. Rockwell St. Chicago, IL 60618)
