The Alpha Course

 

Serve at Alpha  Listen to Alpha

 

 

What is Alpha?

The Alpha Course has been held all over the world since the mid 1990s in churches, homes, schools, universities and prisons. Alpha is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith in a relaxed, non-threatening setting over ten thought-provoking weekly sessions. It’s free dinner, low-key conversation, and friendly fun.

 

What Happens at Alpha?

The evening begins with a free dinner at 6:30p. After dinner there is a talk given on “Exploring the Meaning of Life”. After the talk, there is a small group discussion time where you can feel free to ask questions and express your opinions about the topic. The dinner is our gift to you. Childcare will be provided.

 

We’d love to have you join us.

The Alpha Course takes place twice a year, once in the Spring and once in the Fall. It is held at Lakeview Christian Center, 5885 Fleur de Lis Drive, New Orleans, LA 70124. The Fall 2013 Alpha Course begins August 20 at 6:30p and will be every Tuesday night for 10 weeks. If you have any questions, or need help registering, contact the church office at 504.482.6221.

Summer Bible Jam 2014

This summer, our Small Group Ministry will be taking a break. But we’ll be using this time to focus on two things: 1) normalizing personal Bible reading, and 2) normalizing Christians getting together to discuss God’s Word.

Sometimes we think of “discipleship” as something that takes place when we evangelize lost people, or the work that’s performed by professionals through ministry programs. But every disciple is called to the process of discipleship, and every disciple is called to be a disciple-maker. Put simply: Christians follow Jesus, and they help others follow him as well. 

Promoting these practices is the goal of our Summer Bible Jam.

Here’s what you need:

  1. A Bible Reading Plan
  2. 2 or 3 other believers to form your discipleship group

 

BIBLE READING PLANS

Choose one of these tracks to follow this summer.

“Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life” (John 6:68)

 

DISCIPLESHIP GROUPS

When Paul describes how the church is to grow, he presents a vision that involves every believer’s contribution:

“Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love” (Ephesians 4:15-16)

Discipleship groups are designed to put this into practice. They’re simply settings for gathering with other believers in order to speak the truth in love to one another, that the body might grow. You set the meeting time and place, how frequently your group gets together, whatever works best for you. But the goal is spending time sharing life and talking about what matters most.

Who could get together?

  • Fathers & Sons
  • Mothers & Daughters
  • Families
  • Men with Men
  • Women with Women
  • College Students
  • Teenagers with Teenagers
  • Friends you haven’t connected with recently
  • Co-workers
  • Leaders with fellow leaders

 

Four Questions

Here are four questions to ask when you meet and discuss what you have read. Take turns each meeting having someone lead through the questions.

  1. What does this passage say about God?
  2. What does this passage say about humanity?
  3. What does this passage say about the Gospel?
  4. How does this passage apply to my life?

Christ Cares Cancer Ministry

Christ-Cares-Logo-(Featured)-Gray

The author of Hebrews invites believers to draw near to Christ and “find grace to help in time of need” (Heb. 4:16). We need only live long enough to experience a time of unique suffering and difficulty. An increasingly common trial among us is the cancer diagnosis. We want to be able to serve those who are suffering in this particular way, both inside and outside of the church body, and so we have a ministry called “Christ Cares Cancer Ministry.”

One of the ways that we seek to serve the community of individuals fighting cancer is our monthly dinner at Hope Lodge. Here are the dates that we will be serving dinner there:

Wednesday, March 5th
Wednesday, April 2nd
Wednesday, May 7th
Wednesday, June 4th
