We look forward to returning to in-person Alpha in the fall of 2022. You might think that online Alpha would be less attractive, we certainly were concerned about this. But we think online Alpha reaches people who never would have walked through our door. We launched our newest Alpha the third week of September.
We have fourteen souls signed up, one zooming in from New Zeeland! In addition to our Alpha guests we are training a new church partner, The Pointe Church. MCC is the hub church for Alpha USA here in West Michigan, a role we take very seriously.
To date we have met with, trained, and helped launch Alpha in over 15 churches. Sadly, not all have kept at it. Alpha requires some tenacity.
Thank you again for your support. Like every other church we have felt the challenge of Covid at MCC. Yet we are more optimistic than every about what the Holy Spirit is doing here in the city and in West Michigan.
