Alpha is Coming!

Alpha is a worldwide phenomenon. It’s found in over 169 countries. It’s run in tens of thousands of schools, prisons, homes and churches of all denominations. It’s given more than 19.6 million people the opportunity to explore the meaning of life.      
The Alpha course covers the basics of Christianity. It answers questions like: Who is Jesus?, and Why did he die? The Alpha course usually lasts 10 weeks, with a day or weekend getaway in the middle. Each week, guests gather for about two hours. They share an informal meal, sing a few songs, listen to a talk on how Christianity approaches the question at hand, then gather into small groups for discussion. The talks each week act as a springboard for small group discussions.

THE FUTURE OF THE MAG


God provided a home for our church family in the perfect spot to reach out to the community, but it doesn't "look" like a typical church building. On April 21, 2015 the roof on the sanctuary was torn off and rafters started going up to build a new roof over that side of the building.

In four days we went from looking like a store to looking more like what people expect a church building to look like.  The roof on the Parish Hall side of the building has been torn off and replaced, also. The windows and door on the sanctuary side of the building will be replaced soon, and the facade will look very different when it is all finished. 

We welcome you to help us follow through with the plans that God has put before us!

 






 


A BRIDGE TO A SECOND CHANCE

In November of 2013, Benny was freezing, shivering, without a coat to wear against the unusually cold November in Camden, South Carolina. He had lived under a local bridge for seven years, choosing alcohol as his god and family while he shunned..... (Continue Reading here)
