Your Kids Love Alpha

By Rev. Michael King|2019-01-18T11:34:39-04:00Jan 18, 2019|Alpha|

This past year, Hannah and I had our second baby. Well, she did most of the having, but our baby David was born last February. You’ve probably seen him, he’s the one who is objectively the most beautiful baby boy to be born this century, rivaled only by our firstborn, [...]

Through the Years

By Jason Lalone|2019-01-15T16:45:08-04:00Jan 12, 2019|Alpha|

In 2011 I was two years into my “real job”. I had graduated college, gotten my degree and set out to conquer the world. Conquering the world really meant becoming a true adult who had responsibilities, bills and college debt. Unfortunately paying those bills meant waking up at 5:30am every [...]

Alpha Isn’t For Me

By Becca Triplett |2019-01-08T15:46:14-04:00Jan 8, 2019|Alpha|

I didn’t think that Alpha was for me. When I first started coming to Truro a few years ago, I heard a lot about Alpha and how everyone should participate in it, but I was a little hesitant. Wasn’t Alpha for beginning Christians who didn’t know Jesus? I knew Jesus, [...]

The Life of the World

By |2018-08-20T14:15:10-04:00Aug 20, 2018|The Amore Blog|

In yesterday’s gospel reading, we heard that Jesus is “the bread of life…given for the life of the world.” (John 6:51-58). Those of us who have come to know Jesus as Lord, who have tasted and seen that He is good, know this to be true. We know that He [...]

Looking for Family

By |2018-05-21T16:16:21-04:00May 21, 2018|The Amore Blog|

"Everybody is looking for family, even if they are running from it." I heard someone say this a few months ago and I've been reflecting on it ever since. We live in a world that elevates the individual: independence, upward mobility, and professional success are powerful cultural values that encourage [...]

Amore at Truro is all about "encountering the love of God through the love of families." This happens in myriad ways-- when people open their homes to others and welcome them at the dinner table, for example; or when a husband-wife team serve their community or church together; or when [...]

Alpha — From Behind the Scenes

By Becca Triplett|2018-01-17T16:12:34-04:00Jan 17, 2018|Alpha|

Hi, my name is Becca and I work with the Alpha program. My job includes working with the taskforce and creating a welcoming atmosphere; so, the jobs that seem “behind the scenes” often fall to me. Making sure there’s food for the guests on time? Coordinating volunteers to serve the [...]
