explore life, faith, and meaning

What is Alpha?

Alpha is a series of conversations that explore life, spirituality, and faith in a fun, non-judgmental, and open environment.

Where? Alpha is hosted Online (Zoom) and Hybrid (in-person). Come join either online or in-person to connect, join in conversations, ask questions, and be heard!

Who is it for?

It’s perfect for unbelievers, skeptics, the curious, anyone with major doubts or hurts or those who just want to talk about real issues and have honest conversation—and find community—in these difficult times. Come the first week and check it out – and then decide if Alpha is for you – no strings attached.

Alpha at Lorain Correctional Institute

Alpha at LorCI creates a space where men can ask life’s big questions and find out about the Christian faith in a safe, informal, and friendly environment.

The Alpha LorCI team would like to partner with dedicated volunteers, who have had previous Alpha experience, to tangibly show the love of Jesus to men that society has tossed away and labeled as unworthy, broken, dangerous, or beyond help.  Through Alpha, the men are reminded that God does not label them – he LOVES them.
