Youth Classes         The Alpha Youth Film Series is created for audiences ages 13-18 years old.  Alpha’s approach to hospitality, faith, and discussion is designed to welcome everyone.  Centenary youth are encouraged to come and participate, and are invited to bring friends who may not describe themselves as Christians or church-goers.  Alpha makes it easy to invite friends to have spiritual conversations which explore life’s biggest questions, conversations which explore life’s biggest questions in a safe and respectful way.  Each session includes time for video, short teaching, and discussion.

What will we be studying?  Life, Jesus, The Cross, Faith, Prayer, Bible, Follow, Spirit, Fill, Evil, Healing, and the Church.
