St. Thomas Memorial Church in Oakmont, will begin the Alpha Course in September.

The Alpha Course is a ten-week class for anyone seeking answers to the tough questions of life or seeking to explore the Christian faith, such as: What is the meaning of life? What happens when we die? What relevance does Jesus have for our lives? How do we deal with guilt?

If you have ever asked yourself these questions then COME, try out Alpha and hear some answers.

An Alpha Celebration Dinner will be held on Sunday, September 11, from 5:30 until 7:30 p.m. for anyone desiring just a taste of what the course is like. If you are an Alpha graduate and would like to introduce someone, this would be the perfect event to bring them to. Or if you are simply interested in exploring the course, you may also attend. Alpha Course Founder Nicky Gumble will present "Christianity: Irrelevant, Untrue, Boring?" There is no obligation and no charge for the dinner.

The Alpha Course begins on Wednesday, September 14, at 6:30 p.m. at St. Thomas Church. Dinner and nursery are provided. No charge for the course. The evening begins with dinner, followed by a 30-minute presentation and ends with discussion groups. It ends no later than 8:45. Call 412-828-9680 or stthomasoakmont@verizon.net

Alpha is for everyone! It is especially geared to: Those who want answers to the basic questions of life, people interested in investigating Christianity, new Christians, couples preparing for marriage or Christians who want to brush up on the basics.

St. Thomas Church is located at the corner of Delaware Ave. and 4th St. in Oakmont.
