Alpha

Tuesdays, starting February 16 | 7-8:30pm | Zoom

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to ask life’s big questions:

What is my purpose? What happens when I die? Why is there suffering?

Alpha is a chance to ask these questions and explore the Christian faith in a fun, no-pressure environment. Each session includes a short video and a discussion where you can talk through your thoughts and questions with a small group of people much like you.

SBC’s Alpha class will be meeting on Zoom, so you can join from anywhere and invite your friends and family from around the country, or even in your own neighborhood. We will send Zoom instructions to those who register.

Testimonies from previous SBC Alpha participants:

My husband and I were going through marital problems and started to attend SBC in hopes of finding some answers. One Sunday morning a friend told us, “There’s a new class starting soon called Alpha and I think you guys would love it.” We said ok and signed up having no idea what we were getting into! My experience at Alpha was more than I could have ever imagined. It answered so many questions about life, faith, God and Jesus.  Our small group was a place where we could ask questions and have open, honest and raw discussions. I did not once feel ashamed or judged. We laughed together, we cried together and we became friends. I considered myself a Christian my whole life, but what I learned through Alpha was that I had never really had a relationship with Jesus. Alpha was my gateway into growing my faith in God through Jesus our Savior. It has led me to amazing people, involvement in the church, and taught me more about myself than I realized. It saved our marriage and most importantly, it helped me find purpose through a new relationship with Jesus. I am forever grateful for the Alpha team!   – Catie

“A neighbor asked if I would like to attend an Alpha meeting. I have always considered myself a Christian, but I have also had questions and doubts. I went. I asked my questions and expressed my doubts, not expecting them to be able to answer them to my satisfaction. But they did, to my surprise. I also half expected them to try to push religion on me, but they did not. They allowed me to discover and accept Jesus Christ in my own way and at my own pace. It all made sense! I have come a long way because of Alpha and the fine people at Scottsdale Bible Church. But my journey is just beginning, and I still have a distance to go, and with their fine help, I know that I will make it.”  – Larry

“I had heard about Jesus my entire life but along the way decided I didn’t believe in Him. When I learned about Alpha, I decided to give it a try because I had wondered about Jesus over the years and thought–what if I’m wrong about Him? Alpha presented information that helped me understand who He was and is in my life, and the transformation that is taking place within me is better than I could have ever imagined.”  – Michelle
