Things I Love About Alpha

By |2019-09-24T08:42:46-04:00Sep 24, 2019|Alpha, Events|

I didn’t think I’d like Alpha before I tried it. I was already a Christian, so I wasn’t expecting to get anything out of it. But, the more I experience it, the more things I love about it. Here are a few of the things I love about Alpha: There’s [...]

A Journey Through the Years

By Jason LaLone|2019-09-16T12:08:18-04:00Sep 16, 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 [...]

Your Kids Love 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, [...]

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, [...]

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 [...]
